November 11th, 2022
On Friday, November 11th, 2022, at approximately 7:55 a.m., members of the Collinsville Police Department responded to the area of the Collinsville Crossing retail complex where they met with a female reporting she been abducted at knifepoint. Officers were advised that at approximately 7:05 a.m., a white male in his mid 30’s, wearing a black hoodie, grey sweat pants, and black high-top tennis shoes, approached her vehicle while waiting for an on-line order at Starbucks. She advised the male displayed a large knife and forced her to drive to the Troy, Illinois area where he sexually assaulted the victim. The suspect then drove the victim back to the Collinsville Crossing retail complex, parked her car on the parking of Wendy’s, and fled the area on foot toward Golden Corral/Walgreens at approximately 7:51 am. Shortly thereafter, the victim called police. Other than obvious trauma caused by a crime of this nature, no further injuries were reported.
Investigators quickly responded and assumed the follow-up investigation, developing additional leads from the area. At this point in time, it is believed this is a random act of violence by an unknown assailant. Investigators will continue to pursue additional leads and we encourage the public to remain vigilant of their surroundings.
