The Riley Co. Police Dept. tweeted Monday the individual was identified, but did not release his name. A spokesperson told 13 NEWS no one has been arrested in connection with the investigation so far.

They released the video of the man Tuesday. He was linked to a New Year's Eve sexual assault in a vehicle behind Jeff’s Pizza, in Manhattan. Investigators say a Good Samaritan spotted the victim in distress shortly after midnight and helped re-connect her with her friends.

At the time the video was made public, investigators also said they wanted to talk to the Good Samaritan as well.

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to call police at 785-537-2112 or Crime Stoppers at 785-539-7777.
