SHELTON - A clerk at a Cumberland Farms in Shelton says she was kidnapped from her job and sexually assaulted early this morning.

Police say it happened at the store on River Road at around 2 a.m. Officials say the woman was found badly beaten and begging for help hours later at a home several miles away.

This afternoon, police released a surveillance photo of the suspect. They say it appears he has a large tattoo on his upper right arm.

Police are still unsure if the victim knew her attacker because she is still in the hospital.

Anyone with information is urged to call police at 203-924-1544.
