Sketch of suspect in Monon Trail attacks

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Aug. 25, 2015) – Indianapolis Metropolitan police released a sketch of a man tied to a series of attacks on the Monon Trail.

One of the cases included a sexual battery on Aug. 8 in the 2000 block of Monon Trail between 19th and 20th streets. The man may also be involved in a pair of other attacks in the same area on July 17 and July 25. In the July cases, women were out running on the trail when they encountered the man, who grabbed their buttocks while they passed by.

According to IMPD, the man is believed to be in his late 30s. Witnesses said he’s 5’10” to 6’0” and 200-225 pounds with a heavy or “doughy” build. He also has glasses and wears his hair in shoulder-length braids.

The man wore a gray tank top, black athletic shorts, white socks and brightly colored sneakers.

Anyone with information should contact Det. Rick Burkhardt at (317) 327-3307 or Sgt. Greg Strehle at (317) 327-6223.
