Sketch of suspect released

LAWRENCEVILLE - Police sketch artists released a drawing Saturday of the man suspected of sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl at Collins Hill Park in the girls' public bathroom Friday afternoon.

The suspect was described as a white man, 5 feet 9 inches tall, with a thin build, in his late teens or early 20s. He wore a red shirt with black stripes, dark blue jeans, white tennis shoes and a black wristwatch, said Darren Moloney, spokesman for the Gwinnett County Police Department.

He was seen exiting the girls' bathroom and getting into a white minivan with a group of people before exiting the park, Moloney said.

The girl was examined by a sexual assault nurse and did not require medical attention. Police are asking anyone with information to call 770-513-5300.
