Port Salerno sexual assault update: Images released of man wanted in connection with attack on girl

PORT SALERNO, Fla. -- - The Martin County Sheriff's Office has released composite pictures of the man matching the description of the person  suspected of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl.

The sheriff's office says they are the result of input from three independent witnesses. Although there are two images, there is only one suspect.

Deputies said the victim was playing at the Manatee Creek Park with her two younger siblings around 4:30 p.m. Sunday when the man approached.

Investigators said the girl fought her attacker for roughly five minutes before he took off running north along the train tracks.

The person investigators are looking for is a white male with blond hair in his 20s wearing some sort of cast or brace on his hand.

The clothing description was the same as described by the victim and the independent adult witness, the sheriff's office says.

If you have any information, call the Martin County Sheriff's Office or Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-800-273- 8477.
