LINCOLN PARK (WWJ) – With one suspect already in custody in connection with a horrific kidnapping and sexual assault, police are looking for help from the public to track down a second.

Lincoln Park police said Tuesday they’re looking for 19-year-old Fernando Anderson IV — allegedly one of two young men who carjacked a Detroit woman in a Walgreens parking lot last week.

At around 9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 30, police say Anderson and his accomplice pulled a gun on their victim as she was parked outside the pharmacy at Fort St. and Southfield Road in Lincoln Park.

They kidnapped her, police said, and then drove around in her vehicle “periodically taking turns raping” her.

The suspects were caught on security camera, police said, when they stopped by buy cigarettes at a gas station.

The ordeal ended with the pair letting the woman go because the younger suspect, who was on a tether, “needed to be home by 10 p.m.,” according to police.

Almost immediately after photos of one suspect were released to the media on Monday, police say they began to receive tips.

At approximately 8 p.m., the suspect in the photo turned himself in. His name will be released after a warrant is obtained and he’s formerly arraigned.

Meantime, police said the pistol used in the crime was not recovered, so the remaining suspect — who is “currently, actively, being sought” — should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who may have seen Anderson or who knows of his whereabouts should call LPPD Detectives at 313-381-1800
