(KSL News) Police are investigating a possible rape that happened overnight near Mountain Dell in Parley's Canyon.

Police say a 34-year-old female was visiting her mother in Bountiful when a man approached her in the parking lot and asked for a lift. She agreed to give him a ride to Salt Lake.

Dave Dow/ Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office: "He brandished a black handgun and they ended up going up the canyon, I-80 to the Mountain Dell area, where a sexual assault occured throughout the night."

Police say the victim got away this morning after the suspect got out of the car to go to the bathroom.

The suspect is described as a 17- to 19- year old male with blond slicked back hair and a chip in his left front tooth.

If you have any information please call the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office.
