A suspect sexually assaulted a 9-year-old girl at Santiago Elementary School in Santa Ana on Friday afternoon and remains at large, police revealed Tuesday.
The girl told her mother Friday night about the assault, which she said occurred in the school’s bathroom at 2212 Baker St. about 2:20 p.m., after classes were dismissed for the day, according to Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.
The girl said she did not know the man, he said, and no one on staff at the school — which is on break this week — was able to identify the suspect based on the girl’s description.
The suspect, who wore a dark-colored hoodie, was a Latino man in his 30s, who had “buzzed dark hair with shaved horizontal lines cut into both sides of his head,” Bertagna said. He was unshaven with pock marks or tattoos under his eyes and possibly another tattoo near his neck, the corporal said.
Anyone with information about the attack was asked to call detectives at (714) 245-8351.
