OREM, Utah - Police are searching for a man accused of picking up a woman, taking her to a nearby hotel and sexually assaulting her.

Orem Police said a suspect picked up the woman at Nielsen's Grove Park and took her to a LaQuinta Inn on June 28.

Police said the victim is in her 20s but functions at the mental level of an 8-year-old child.

"But the problem here is this woman has the mental capacity of about an 8-year-old, we're being told, and that's obvious to people who talk to her, so it's not anything that this suspect could have not figured out at the time," said Lt. Craig Martinez of the Orem Police Department.

Police say the victim told the man no when he first asked her to get into his vehicle, but Martinez said the suspect convinced the woman to get into the car.

Investigators said the suspect was driving a white passenger car and may speak a bit of Spanish.

Officers are reviewing surveillance video that may give more information about the suspect.
