TULSA, OK -- Tulsa Police Sex Crimes detectives are looking for a man accused of holding a woman against her will for two days and sexually assaulting her.  Good Samaritans found the woman, naked and crying, underneath their porch.

Cindy Magy was sound asleep when her 31-year-old son had gotten up to get ready for work and let the dog out at about 5:30 Wednesday morning.  The dog, Lobo, wouldn't stop barking so Cindy's son decided to see what was under the porch  causing all the commotion.

"He came in and said mom wake up, we have a naked lady under our porch," said Cindy Magy.

Cindy says the woman was crying and asking for help.  She said she'd been hiding in the narrow space for about three hours, to get away from the man she says had given her a ride Monday morning, and then kept her against her will and sexually assaulted her until she escaped.

"I coaxed her out and said she would be safe and she could come in and get warm and she was totally devastated," said Cindy Magy.

Police are looking for the location, which was within walking or running distance from Magy's home and are also looking for the man.

The victim says he's black, around 5'6 and 150 pounds.  His hair was in cornrows with beads and he wore hoop earrings in both ears.  He had several tattoos, a scar on his belly and a couple of missing front teeth.

"We'll get the information out to officers and hopefully if the public knows who he is, will let us know," said Tulsa Police Cpl. Mark Mears.

Magy's just glad she and her son could help and she gives Lobo all the credit for letting them know, someone was there who needed help.

Police do not believe the woman was the victim of  a random attack and they advise all women not to accept rides from strangers and always let someone know where you're going and when you expect to be back, if you do disappear, they can start looking quickly.

Anyone with information about this suspect should call 596-COPS.
