CrimeMilpitas Police search for man who inappropriately touched child in park

Milpitas Police search for man who inappropriately touched child in park

Earlier today, at 9:21am, in Murphy Park by Grand Teton Drive, a 13-year-old girl was taking a walk when a man approached her from behind.

The man touched the girl inappropriately over her clothing, then punched and spat at her. In response, the girl hit the suspect back, which made him run from the area.

The victim soon found a police officer not far away, to whom she reported what had happened. Milpitas Police Department (MPD) officers and detectives, working with MPD’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) team, swept the area in search of the suspect but couldn’t find him.

An MPD press release put out this evening describes the suspect as follows: a white male, approximately 40 to 50 years old, with crooked yellow teeth, a peeling scabbed facial complexion, and a salt and pepper beard. He was last seen wearing a blue sweater, white shirt, and dark colored jeans. 

A suspect sketch has been shared above.

Murphy Park is now under active MPD patrol. Residents near the park are encouraged by police to check their recent residential surveillance footage for any person who looks like the suspect.

Got more info? Call the MPD openly (408-586-2400) or anonymously (408-586-2500), or drop a tip via their website: http://www.ci.milpitas.ca.gov/crimetip
