Police need help finding a man who sexually assaulted an 8-year-old child

Detectives need your help identifying and locating a suspect wanted in connection with the sexual assault of a child.

The attack happened on Thursday, November 24th at about 1:00 p.m. near the corner of W. Lake Mead Boulevard and N. Buffalo Drive.

Two siblings were playing outside when they were confronted by an unknown adult man, according to Metro police. 

The suspect told the victim's younger brother to go inside so he could talk to the 8-year-old girl alone, said police.

Once alone, the suspect took the girl around a building to a secluded area and sexually assaulted her, said police. He then walked away through the apartment complex.

Police described the suspect as an older white man with a thin build and either white or salt and pepper colored hair. He was last seen wearing a blue tee shirt and black jeans. 

Anyone with information is urged to contact the LVMPD Sexual Assault Section by phone at (702) 828-3421.
