The Madison County Sheriff's Department is looking for a man wanted in connection with a sexual assault in Collinsville this week. 50 year old Jerry Sutt of the 1200 block of Iowa Street in Madison allegedly tied up the occupants of a home in rural Collinsville Wednesday evening and raped a female at the home before fleeing. Sutt has an extensive criminal history and police consider him armed and dangerous.
The victim was taken to a St. Louis hospital for treatment, and sheriff's deputies, the Granite City Police and U.S. Marshals are actively searching for Sutt. He was formally charged on Thursday in Madison County with unlawful restraint and two counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault. If you know his whereabouts, you're urged to call police. The Madison County anonymous tip line is 618-296-3000.
