A $7,500 reward is being offered for information leading to the capture of a man who sexually assaulted a six-year-old girl after luring her from an Oakland school.
The Oakland Police Department says that at around 3:15 PM on Friday, a man led the victim away from the school and assaulted her. After the assault, the child returned to the school and told an adult what had happened to her. The adult then reported the assault to police.
The suspect is described as "a Hispanic male in his early 20s standing between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, with an average build and black hair." Police say that he was wearing a blue and black jacket with black shorts at the time of the assault. According to the Chron, the suspect "may have a tattoo of a horse face on his left calf."
The man may have been driving a silver, four-door SUV, police said.
Crime Stoppers of Oakland is offering a $7,500 reward for information leading to an arrest in this case, which, the Chron suggests, might be connected to two other very similar incidents earlier this year in East Oakland.
According to the Contra-Costa Times, the man depicted in the sketch above has entered at least two other East Oakland school campuses, where he then touched two young girls in an inappropriate manner. One assault happened on January 24 of this year at Think College Now Elementary School, the other on March 7 at the the World Academy-Education for Change school.
