Police released a sketch of the man who last week held three teenage girls (ages 17, 15 and 12) at gunpoint, forced them to strip and then molested them in the street. After sexually assaulting the girls one-by-one, he stole their cell phones and ran off into the night. The crime took place at 11:45 p.m. on Monday, July 23, in front of the girls' home in the 4400 Elmbank Avenue, west of Fairground Park.

He's described as a black man in his mid-20s, about 5'8'' to 5'10'' with a thin build. He has a mustache and thin braids.

Anyone who recognizes this man, or who has any information about the crime, is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-8477.
