Police were investigating an armed sexual battery that occurred in southeast Gainesville early Friday.

A man held a woman at gunpoint and forced her to perform a sex act, said Lt. David Rowe. The incident occurred at about 2 a.m. in a field near a church at 908 SE Williston Road.

The woman told officers she was in the area when a man grabbed her, made her disrobe and perform a sex act, according to police. During the incident, he threatened to kill her and held a gun to her head.

Police did not immediately have additional details about the crime or the suspect.

Rowe said officers have not recently received any other reports of similar attacks.
