    San Leandro Police are looking for a sexual assault suspect. Tuesday, detectives released a sketch. They say he attacked a young girl over the weekend.

    It happened Saturday afternoon at the Lakeside Village Apartment complex on the 3000 block of Waterfall Way. The victim was playing at the complex's pool and was assaulted when she used the nearby restroom.

    The man attacked and sexually assaulted her once she got into the bathroom. He fled before police arrived.

    Police said that the suspect is not believed to live in the apartment complex but either was there visiting someone who does live there or followed someone inside.

    Detectives say the suspect is 19 or 20 years old with tattoos on his arms.

    Detectives have been examining forensic evidence, searching for surveillance video and interviewing witnesses to try and track down the suspect, police said.

    "We are committed to solving this violent crime and bringing resolution to the survivor and her family as soon as possible," San Leandro police Lt. Robert McManus said in a statement.

    Anyone with information about the case or who can identify the suspect has been asked to contact San Leandro police at (510) 577-2740 or anonymously at (510) 577-3278.
