CMPD Needs Your Help Locating Sexual Predator

From the Charlotte Observer:

Police are asking the public to help them find a man who they say tried to sexually assault two women in East Charlotte last week.

The attempted assaults happened near where Milton Road, Harris Boulevard and Sharon Amity Road converge in east Charlotte.

The first happened on Feb. 2 just after 10 p.m. Police say a woman was approached by the suspect, who indicated that he had a weapon and demanded her purse. When the woman handed over her purse, police say, the man tried to sexually assault her. The woman was able to get away.

The second attempt happened on Feb. 4 around 12:40 a.m. Another woman was approached by a suspect who fit the same description. The suspect indicated a weapon and told the woman he wanted her to perform sexual acts with him. When the woman refused, the two struggled with each other before the victim was able to break free and escape.

Police released a composite drawing of the suspect. They say he is a light-skinned black male, in his late teens to early 20s. He has no facial hair, and is between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8. He was last seen wearing a dark hooded jacket.

Officers ask that anyone with information call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600. The investigating officer can be reached at 704-353-0094.

In my best John Walsh impersonation: Let's get this creep off the streets now. Someone knows who this guy is and we need to cuff him and stuff him before he can strike again.
