WEST ALLIS -- West Allis police need your help to track down a person who allegedly had inappropriate sexual contact with a young girl on Thursday morning, April 21st.

West Allis policeOfficials say the juvenile victim and her younger sister encountered the suspect near 61st and Lapham in West Allis around 8 a.m. Thursday. Police say the suspect "grabbed the older female victim and engaged in inappropriate sexual contact." The girl was able to break away from the man -- and continued walking from the area. The younger girl was not assaulted.

"It's pathetic that we have people out here doing stuff like that," said Marena Velez, a mother who spoke with FOX6 News. Hearing this incident happened on her block is even more disturbing to Velez.

"It's like we have to keep our kids in the house to protect them -- and it's not right, it's not fair to them," Velez said.


Police describe the suspect as a male, Hispanic, who spoke Spanish to the victim, is about 20-30 years old, approximately 5'6" tall with a thin build. Officials say he had short, black hair and tight curls. He was clean-shaven and was wearing a white t-shirt and jeans. The suspect was apparently driving a red, classic four-door vehicle.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call the West Allis Police Department at 414-302-8000.

Officials say they have devoted a lot of resources to help identify the suspect. They have also come up with a safety plan to ensure students can get to and from school in a safe manner.

    Right by “Washington heights” playground. Grew up in that neighborhood, 70’s and 80’s. Was super decent and safe. Now that they let all the low-lifes move in, so glad I moved away. All the decent people need to “take back” their neighborhood. Was a great place to grow up, many fond memories of ice skating, pizza place, Washington school, green market. Now look at the memories some slob/piece of crap excuse for a human being left for that poor girl. He should have his genitals chopped off and made to wear them as a necklace. He is LUCKY it wasn’t my child……

      “Police describe the suspect as a male, Hispanic…”

    What is wrong with these people in the city!? I’m sick of hearing about the sexual violence against our children and women here! Stop this crap now. Parents WATCH YOUR CHILDREN, THIS MEANS AT ALL TIMES! OBVIOUSLY THIS IS NOT A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD ANYMORE SO LETTING THEM OUT OF YOUR SIGHT IS OUT OF THE DAMN QUESTION!!! As for this garbage, if it was my kid he had better f-ing pray that the cops found his ass before I would, cause cutting off his genitals would be the least of his worrys. Find him and throw him in wi th other inmates instead of giving him protective custody! Let them cull these trash and get what they deserve. I can’t stand the justice system letting these people get minimal sentences and then setting them up with places to live, screw that! I say publicly excite them in the most cruel and torturous fashion possible as a lesson to these other freaks to keep their sick fantasies in their sick minds or do society a favor and off themselves!!! Get rid of them permenantly instead of coddling them and wasting time and resources “rehabbing” trash that cannot be rehabbed and that has been shown by science to be true.
