    Details left out by NW16, it happened at 10th Street and Garibaldi Court and it was a Black or possibly dark skinned Hispanic male.

    The vehicle was a red, four-door sedan with rust on the rear corner of the vehicle.

    We know why the one detail was left out, but why not try and help catch the guy by publishing the rest?

    Hope they find the pervert before he hurts somebody. Glad the girl was smart and is okay. It’s so disgusting to hear this stuff day in, day out.
