YPSILANTI TWP., Mich. (WJBK) -

"I was walking every morning at 5 a.m. with my dog and then I heard that this happened and I was like - I want a buddy - can you walk with me?" asks Tabitha Ragsdale of her friend Amanda King.

The two are heightened alert ever since they learned of an alleged sexual assault in their Ypsilanti Township neighborhood.

"It's sad - it's real sad because there's so many negative things that you hear about and you don't want it to be so close to home," says King.

But what's alleged to happen occurred in their neighborhood at Cary Drive and Textile Rd.

A 21-year-old woman told Washtenaw County Sheriff's Deputies that her car broke down.  while she was waiting for her father two men attacked her.

The sketch of one man is posted in this story.  He is described as six feet tall, thin and dark completed.

The other suspect has a medium build, 5'6", light complexion, with a mole or birthmark on his left cheek.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Washtenaw Sheriff's Department.

    The case was originally about workplace discrimination. Now it's dragged on for more than a decade despite the case appearing to be one that the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation can't win.
