MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -- Mobile Police are asking for help identifying a man they want to question about a sexual assault.

Investigators said the attack happened Saturday, June 8. According to police, two women left Saddle Up Saloon in Downtown Mobile around 2 a.m. Officers said the women accepted a ride from an unknown man and were taken to the Trinity Gardens area.

"You don't normally think about those things, you don't really have to worry about those things," said Stephanie Irby. "Just hearing that gives you a different state of mind."

"Something like this is definitely concerning in downtown," said Tres Wiggins. "It happens unfortunately all to often in any city."

Police said one of the women was sexually assaulted by the man.

Downtown Mobile is a hotspot for fun over the weekend. Many people said while they feel safe they always keep an eye open.

"Those poor girls, it was never their fault that kind of thing," said Taylor Rogers. "It's just very scary and you always have to be careful."

Anyone who can identify the person in the photo or can help police locate the vehicle, which is believed to be a 2007-2011 grey or silver Nissan Altima, is asked to call MPD at 251-208-7211.
