The Houston Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying the man possibly suspected of sexually assaulting a ten-year-old boy in a library bathroom.
According to Special Victims Division Officer Annette Keyes, the boy was at the Aldine Branch Library on August 24 when the assault occurred. The boy went to the bathroom and, once he entered, the suspect forced him into a stall and sexually assaulted him. The boy was able to escape, while the suspect fled on foot.
Now, HPD has released surveillance video of a man entering the library who police believe may have been involved in the attack. Police describe the man as Hispanic with a goatee, weighing around 140 to 170 pounds and being between 5 feet 7 and 5 feet 10 inches tall. Police said he was also wearing a dark-colored polo shirt and pants on the day of the incident. He is wanted for questioning.
