Orem Police Seek Sexual Assault Suspect
(KUTV) Orem police are looking for a suspect that attempted to sexually assault an 11-year-old girl on her way to school Wednesday morning.
Police say the suspect is a white male in his late teens or early20s, wearing a gray hoodie, black hat and tennis shoes.
Chris Jones spoke with Doyle Wright, a man that says he may have seen the young girl and the suspect walking down the sidewalk in front of his home around 7:30 am Wednesday morning.
Wright says the suspect had his hand on the girls back as they were walking. Their behavior lead him to believe the situation was odd, but the girl did not seem to be in danger.
The two continued heading east toward a church located near Wright's home. Wright said he felt uneasy and for some reason drove by the church on his way to work. He says he saw the suspect pointing to the church and talking with the girl.
Wright continued heading to work, but regretted not stopping and checking on the girl who he says may have been in distress, but was not crying.
If anyone was in the area and saw anything, police ask that you contact them immediately at (801) 229-7070.
