   Carter County Sheriff's Department officers are investigating an alleged sexual assault of a woman that reportedly occurred Saturday night after the alleged victim and perpetrator smoked cocaine.
   CCSD Deputy David Ryan spoke with the alleged victim, a 37-year-old white female, who said a male subject known to her as "Jamal" and a female subject unknown to her had come to her Carter County residence because she was having a garage sale. According to her statement to police, the alleged victim said she and the two subjects stayed at her residence and, later during the day, smoked rock cocaine.
   The woman said she woke up Sunday in a bedroom of her residence to find her pajama bottoms and underwear lying in the floor. She also said a scarf was tied to her ankle. She told police she did not consent to any sexual activity the night before and that anything sexual that had happened was against her will.
   An investigation into the alleged assault is continuing.
