Malden police searching sexual assault suspect

Posted: Updated:
MALDEN, Mass. (WHDH) - Police say a man on a bike assaulted a girl on a popular path in Malden.

Surveillance pictures show a young man who police say sexually accosted a high school-aged girl.

"Kind of sad you know. They built this path here so the kids would be more safe,” a parent, said.

It happened on a well-traveled bike path early in the morning right next to a charter school.

"It's pretty busy. We're always here. I never see anybody. Right around here is always very busy,” a parent said.

Police were knocking on doors talking to neighbors and people who work near the bike path.

"Nobody's pleased. We're watching more in the morning than we did before. The guys were upset,” a man who works nearby said.

Malden police are asking for the public's help to catch the suspect and want you to take a close look.

"I feel safe here. Like I said I've been living here for a long time. This is my shortcut home. But it's awful to hear stuff like that,” Chandelere Vital, a neighbor, said.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to call the Malden Police Department at (781) 397-7171.
