Possible suspect in assault of 10-year-old girl

Residents living near 15th Place and Orchard say that is the man who forced himself on a ten-year-old girl. The incident happened Tuesday morning, December 16th.

Witnesses say the little girl was walking alone to school when she was pinned down by the suspect. The suspect had his pants down.

When Wendy Diaz heard the girl's screams, ran after the man and injuring her knee in the process.

Diaz and others say the suspect is no stranger to the neighborhood.

"He's a predator and he's stalking the little girls around here.  He's been seen outside the school watching the children going to school in the morning," said Diaz.

Surveillance photos released by Milwaukee police on Wednesday night match the description residents have provided officers.

Witnesses say the suspect in his late teens, 5’11” and about 300 lbs. He was wearing a bright red baseball cap, a dark-hooded jacket and dark pants.

    If he is guilty dont even put him on trial or in jail, just cut his junk off and let him bleed to death. What a waste of air….

    Stephon might as well put a tractor tire rim around his neck and jump in Lake Michigan. He will be caught one way or another. God knows right where he is. This guy will be punished by man and by God.

    Amazing how this works . A man writes the truth and it gets deleted very fast. A few months and I am back up north. Enough of Mil. Lots of poor people in the UP. They would never shoot the neighbors. They would help them cut some wood to heat their house Maybe share the bottle & some of the weed. Swedes, Finns, Italians & a few Germans. That is the UP!!!! Crime is littering. Get caught doing that a Yopper will fix your tail.

      I hear ya! I’d move back, but I think Walker forgot that NE Wisconsin needs jobs, too. If you ain’t cutting firewood for a living, there’s no way to make any type of a living up there, and you can only eat just so much venison and fish, morning, noon, and night.

    I used to live on 15th Place & Greenfield years ago, and there was never anything like this. This neighborhood has really changed…and not for the better. Now it’s becoming an extension of the north side.
