Investigators say they are following up on leads in the case of a 41-year-old woman who was attacked and sexually assaulted on a remote road in Sebago over the weekend.

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office shipped a sample of the attacker’s bodily fluids, taken from a rape kit, to the state police crime lab today for developing a DNA profile to see if it matches anyone in state or federal databases of other offenders.

The woman told police that her car was stuck on ice on a secondary road at 12:30 a.m. Saturday when a motorist in a pickup truck with New Hampshire license plates and towing snowmobiles stopped and offered help. When she got out of her vehicle, the man attacked her, punched her in the face and sexually assaulted her, authorities said.

The man then stole money from the woman’s vehicle and drove off, leaving the injured woman on the side of the road.

Investigators say they have received some leads they are following up on but have not been able to identify the suspect yet.
