Police have released a sketch of a suspect wanted for the sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl at a northeast Oklahoma City strip mall.

On June 10, police were called to the strip mall near N.E. 36th Street and N. Kelley Avenue where the girl said she'd been attacked. The girl told police she was standing on the east side of the mall by the dumpsters in a secluded area. She was talking with a male friend, but after he left a man drove up.

The young victim told police the suspect was driving an older model, white pickup truck with the word "plumbing" spelled out in black letters on the side. The man got out of the truck and approached the victim.

The teen said she asked the man if she had to leave the area. He said no but kept coming toward her. She said the man then pushed her toward a wall, wrapped his arms around her and tried to force her to the ground.

The victim said the suspect ripped off some of her clothes while she yelled and struggled. She said she saw a man and a group of kids in the distance, and that's when the suspect suddenly stopped, stood up and told her not to move. He went back to his truck and drove away.

The girl worked with an artist and helped police develop a sketch of the suspect. He's described as a black male approximately 43 years old. He stands 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs 220 pounds, has short black hair, and a full black beard peppered with gray hair. The victim said he was also wearing a pair of silver prescription glasses.

Anyone with information about the suspect or the assault is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
