Authorities are looking for a fourth suspect in a Black Mountain sexual assault case.

Christopher Hamlin has been charged with first-degree forcible sex offense. Three other men -- John Wesley Hardin, Robert Kyle Carter and James Michael Cairaway -- have been arrested on the same charge.

In a 911 call made Saturday, the victim told authorities four men dragged him into a cabin, held him down with a knife to his throat and sexually assaulted him.

Anyone with information about Hamlin's whereabouts is asked to call the Buncombe County Sheriff's Office at 828-255-5555 or the Black Mountain Police Department at 828-419-9350.
