Lawrence Police are asking for the public's help in finding a man suspected of fondling and making inappropriate comments to a 15-year-old girl who was walking to school last week.
The girl told police she was walking in the 1300 block of Connecticut Street between 7:40 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. Oct. 3 when the man approached her, began talking to her and touched her inappropriately. She reported the contact later that day to a school resource officer.
She described the suspect as a white male, about 23 years old, 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 160 pounds, with short, light brown or dark blonde hair and a small goatee with a mustache. He was wearing a blue baseball cap with dark blue stripes and a logo on the front.
Anyone with information is asked to call LPD at 841-7210 or the CrimeStoppers hotline at 843-TIPS.
