About 3:10 p.m. Aug. 14, an unknown man inappropriately touched the girl in front of her residence in the area of Florin Road and Greenhaven Drive. The man approached the victim and briefly spoke with her. During the conversation, he touched the girl on the outside of her clothing, according to a Police Department news release.

The girl was not physically injured, officials said.

The man was described as middle-aged approximately 5 feet, 10 inches tall, heavyset and with a prominent "double chin". He arrived and departed in a 2000s model silver van (partially pictured).

The Police Department's sex assault division is investigating the incident and has released a composite sketch of the suspect. Officials said there is no indication of additional incidents or victims.

Detectives ask anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect to call the Police Department's dispatch center at (916) 264-5471 or Crime alert at (916) 443-4357, or text a tip to 274637.
