TALLADEGA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Talladega County investigators are asking for the public's help in solving the rape and robbery of a 67-year-old woman.

Authorities say someone attacked her Sunday afternoon on Watts Road near the town of Munford.

Investigators say a man wearing a white sleeveless shirt and tan pants knocked on the woman's door, claiming he was selling books.

Sheriff Jimmy Kilgore says the man then forced his way into the home, demanded money, and after receiving some money, demanded even more.

Before the man left, Kilgore says the man raped and sodomized the woman. He was last seen leaving in a white four-door car.

Talladega County investigators have contacted other agencies about similar cases. Anyone with information should contact the Talladega County Sheriff's Office.
