Lake Co. Sherrif
Authorities in Lake County are seeking the public's help to locate a suspect accused of sexual misconduct with a minor in Gary on Monday. The Lake County Sheriff's Office reports a 14 year old girl, who was walking to school in the area of 45th and Grant Street, just before 8am, accepted a ride from a man driving a silver colored vehicle. The Sheriff's Office says the man drove her to a church parking lot, in the area of 47th and Pierce Street, where he allegedly forced her to perform a sex act on him. The girl was able to flee from the vehicle and the suspect reportedly left the area south on Pierce Street. The suspect is described as an older black male, with caramel colored skin, who is older and heavy-set, with black and gray hair and black facial hair on his chin, wearing a gray t-shirt, blue jeans and black shoes. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Lake County Sheriff's Detective Traci Harbin at (219) 755-3355.
