MIAMI - During a Wednesday morning news conference, Miami police announced the arrest of a suspect who allegedly robbed and raped a woman at gunpoint last month.

Police Chief Manuel Orosa said they had arrested Terrance Jefferson, a man described as a career criminal.

Last week, officers went door to door, passing out flyers with a sketch and description of the man.

Surveillance cameras captured images of the man about 9:30 a.m. Dec. 30. Police say he opened the passenger-side door of the woman's car while she sat in it near Northeast 9th Avenue and 86th Street.

The armed man then forced her into the back seat, drove to another area, then sexually assaulted her. He then drove away in a Chevy Impala.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
