Police on Saturday asked for the public's help and released a computerized sketch of a man suspected of sexually battering a high school girl as she walked to a bus stop in Lake Elsinore.
The incident was reported shortly after 5:30 a.m., when the girl left her Tuscany Hills home and started walking to the bus stop, a sheriff's sergeant said.
In the area of Railroad Canyon Road and Summerhill Drive, two men began walking behind her and one of them caught up to her, spoke lewdly to her and touched her, the sergeant said.
The girl continued walking, but the man went to the bus stop with her and continued speaking lewdly and touching her, the sergeant said.
It was not clear how the girl got away from the man.
He is described as black, about 5 feet 5 inches and 160 pounds, with an afro. He wore a red baseball cap, jeans and a black shirt.
He also carried a red backpack, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 951-245-3300.
