    Police hope someone will recognize this man suspected of sex assaults in the 1970s in Montgomery County.

    Police in Montgomery County have released a sketch of a man sought in sex assaults during the mid-1970s, hoping the image will jog someone's memory of events four decades ago.

    Detectives from the Montgomery County Cold Case Unit re-released the composite drawing Friday. The man shown is suspected in sexual assaults in Wheaton, Silver Spring and Takoma Park.

    Detectives in the 1970s had spoken to a witness who described the man seen near an incident in Wheaton. The composite was created 30 years ago.

    Detectives believe that there may be additional victims and say they hope any victims come forward.

    The man was described (in the mid-1970s) as a white male, in his late teens or early-20s, 5 feet 11 inches tall, and weighing about 140 pounds. He had acne scars on the left side of his face.

    Anyone with information regarding the identity of the subject is asked to contact the Cold Case Unit at 240-773-5070.
