CREATED Mar 11, 2014 - UPDATED: Mar 11, 2014

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Police in Murfreesboro are investigating after a woman reported a man broke into her hotel room and attacked her.

Detectives with the Murfreesboro Police Department said the victim was staying at a hotel on south Church Street.

She told police she was sitting in her room around 8 p.m. when she went to answer a knock at the door.

That's when she said a strange man forced his way in, closed the door behind them, and then raped her.

The victim told detectives she did not know her attacker. She was taken to the hospital for treatment and to have a sexual assault evidence collection kit performed. 

Police were working with her to get a description, and hopefully police will have a composite sketch to release to the public.
