Police have obtained an arrest warrant for Parico D. Coffey, the man wanted in Tuesday morning's kidnapping and sexual assault of a Lexington woman.

The warrant is for kidnapping, rape, sodomy and robbery, officers said in a news release Wednesday morning.

Coffey, 21, is being sought in the abduction of a woman from a Speedway gas station near Versailles Road and Alexandria Drive in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday.

Police said an armed man forced his way into the woman's car, drove her to another location and assaulted her.

The victim later managed to escape.

Anyone with information as to Coffey's whereabouts is asked to call the Lexington Division of Police at (859) 258-3600.
