The attack occurred on the south side of town near Zollie Scales Park March 21. The girl was walking along Cordray Street around 5:35 p.m. when a black, four-door Chrysler 300 with chariot rims stopped in front of her. The man jumped out, grabbed her and forced her into the car, then drove a short distance away and raped her, police say.
He is described by police as "a light-complected black male in his early 20s and about 6 feet 3 inches tall. He was wearing a green Adidas T-shirt, blue jeans and green Adidas tennis shoes. He has a tattoo of a red star on the inside of his forearm and several tattoos on both arms."
Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect in the sketch is urged to contact the HPD Juvenile Division at 713-731-5335 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
