Boulder police today released a composite sketch of the sexual assault suspect who reportedly groped and kissed a 13-year-old girl near Manhattan Middle School last week.
The suspect was described as a heavyset man in his 30s with long black hair and no facial hair. He was wearing a blue ski jacket and baggy pants and may have had a necklace or keys hanging around his neck.
According to police, the girl had stayed after school on Nov. 8 to meet with a friend at Keewaydin Park, 250 Manhattan Drive, which is located next to the school.
At about 4:50 p.m., she left the park to walk to the East Boulder Recreation Center when a man she did not know came up behind her, grabbed her arm, kissed her and touched her in "an inappropriate manner," police said.
The girl screamed, police said, and the suspect ran to the school parking lot and drove away in an older white Audi or Subaru sedan.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Boulder police Detective Jeremy Frenzen at 303-441-1890. Those who wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or nococrimestoppers.com.
