Atlanta Police searching for man wanted for rape

- Atlanta Police said they are looking for a man who is wanted for raping a woman who was walking home in southwest Atlanta.

Investigators said the woman was walking along Beckwith Street on May 11, 2015 when 22-year-old Tovoris Gordon grabbed her from behind.  According to the incident  report, the victim tried to fight Gordon but he threw her to the ground and told her to “shut up and stop screaming.”

Police said the man then dragged her towards the football field behind Booker T. Washington High School, where he forced her face-down onto concrete and raped her.

Police said the victim suffered extensive injuries to her shoulder and knee as well as bruising on her face and arm during the attack.

Detectives later found evidence on the northeast side of the field, which they believe connects Gordon to the crime.

Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta told FOX 5's Marissa Mitchell, even though this incident happened two years ago,  the warrants are fairly new. Officials also said Gordon's family lives in the area. They believe he is Atlanta as well  but may be homeless. They added Gordon has been arrested before in New Mexico.

Investigators ask anyone with information on Tovoris Gordon to call the Atlanta Police Department or Crime Stoppers 404.577.TIPS. There is a reward of up to $2,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
