A 25-year-old woman told Columbus Police that she was sexually assaulted at gunpoint late Thursday in the parking lot of the shopping center at 3846 St. Marys Road, according to a police report.
The woman didn't have any visible injuries following the incident, police said.
An officer said he was called to a Columbus home around 11:30 p.m. Thursday to speak with a woman about a sexual assault that occurred between 9 and 10 p.m.
She said a male stranger approached her in the parking lot, held her a gunpoint and demanded sex. The woman was able to return to her vehicle and drive home after what police described as aggravated assault and sexual battery.
