Police need the public’s help identifying the man in this composite sketch, who sexually assaulted a 30‐year‐old woman at the Palmetto Greens Park last month. The victim told police that she was walking in the 1300 block of North Federal Highway on March 24, when the suspect started talking to her and introduced himself as James. Prior to the attack at the park on Northeast 13th Avenue, the suspect bought beer at an unknown convenience store. Detectives are asking employees of convenience stores in the area to look at this sketch and call police if the suspect looks like someone who made a purchase on March 24. The suspect is described as a biracial male, about 30 years old, approximately 5‐foot‐7, average build, with light hazel eyes, hair in short twists, wearing a white t‐shirt, black shorts, black socks and black Nike flip flops. The suspect also has a scar on his right forearm.
