New Sketch of Balboa Park Pervert Released

Police hope an enhanced composite sketch of a man wanted on suspicion of abducting and molesting a 4-year-old girl will help them make an arrest in the case.

Child Abuse detectives with the San Diego Police Department released the new sketch on Wednesday. 

Detectives said the molestation took place in the parking lot adjacent to the Natural History Museum on Sunday, Jan. 25, at about 3 p.m. after the child became separated from her family while playing hide-and-go-seek.  The child said the man told her he would take her to her mother, but police said the man took her instead to his car and molestation.

Surveillance cameras around the museum didn't provide any video of the suspect.  Investigators are hoping park visitors who were taking pictures or shooting video in the area might provide some clues.  They're asking those people to check their cameras for any images of the suspect or the victim.

The molester is believed to be a white man who is about 55 years old. He is 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 180 pounds and has white hair. He was wearing eyeglasses, a green windbreaker, tan pants and a hat at the time of the attack.

Anyone with information about the case is being urged to call the police at 619-531-2260 or CrimeStoppers at 888-580-8477.
