Officers in Port St. Lucie were back canvassing the neighborhood where a 12-year-old boy claims he was molested in the woods Monday.

Police released the 911 call they received notifying them about the incident.

On it a caller says, "We need an ambulance. There's a little boy in the bushes saying he needs help… with no clothes on."

The suspect is described as a white male, 5-5 to 5-feet 6 inches tall, weighing about 215 pounds with brownish black hair. He was last seen wearing a white shirt and green shorts.

Detectives say he lured the boy into the woods off Brenda Circle.

A short time later, the boy screamed for help and ran out naked, where a neighbor comforted him until police arrived.

"Unthinkable acts committed against children and we want to ensure that person is taken off the streets so he can't violate anybody else,” said Port St. Lucie Police Sgt. Frank Sabol.
