(Corinth, MS) Sometime between 11:30 p.m. and midnight last Thursday, an armed man approached a young female and young male in City Park.

The man, wearing all black clothes and a bandana over his face, made the victims get on the ground, then had them get up and took them to a different part of the park, near the playground.

He then made them take off their clothes, and raped the woman at gunpoint.

The rapist made the woman and man throw away their cellphones, then said, "I know where you live."

He also took items from the victim's car.

Authorities say the suspect is a black male between 18 and 20 years old, with a slender build.
