Lake Wales police searching for sexual battery suspect

Posted: Updated:
LAKE WALES (FOX 13) -

Police in Lake Wales have released a sketch of a man connected to a burglary and sexual battery.

Investigators were still searching for him Thursday morning. They say he battered a 68-year-old female in the 200 block of Emerald Avenue.

He is described as a black man in his early 20's. He was clean shaven, polite, and had a thin build. The man was wearing a red sweatshirt, blue jeans, and dark shoes with white markings, the victim told police.

He's probably between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-9. The crime apparently happened Monday, but he may also be connected to another incident last week, police said.

If you recognize him or have any additional information on him, contact detectives at (863) 678-4223.
