IOWA, LA (KPLC) - The man allegedly responsible for attacking a woman in Iowa is still on the loose. Police are continuing their search and beefing up security in the area. But despite the increase in police residents are on edge.

"We used to be the kind of area where you could leave your kids with the coaches, but there's not a parent here that has left today," said Suzanne Sonnier.

Chief Vincent with Iowa police promises residents are safe.

"They are still working very hard right now, trying to do the best we can to catch this guy. Because we really want to catch him," said Chief Vincent.

If you have any information that could help police find the suspect you can call Iowa Police at (337) 582-3636.
