Authorities Monday sought the public’s help to identify the man who sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl in a Lomita-area neighborhood.

The crime occurred in the 300 block of South Meadowbrook Drive about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to San Diego Police Department Lt. Adam Sharki.

“The victim escaped and immediately reported the attack to an adult, who then called SDPD for help,” Sharki said.

The girl described the assailant as a tall, bald Black man in his 30s with an injured or malformed left eye. At the time of the assault, he was wearing dark pants and a royal-blue shirt, and appeared dirty.

Police have released a composite sketch of the suspect.

“While we need our community’s help in identifying the man, it is important that the public not approach the suspect or engage in any confrontation,” Sharki said.

Anyone who might be able to aid investigators in the case is asked to call the SDPD Child Abuse Unit at 619-531-2260.
