Killeen police are seeking help in finding the suspect in last week's abduction and sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl.
Police are seeking any tips or information about the incident. The suspect is described as a white male about 20 years old with a skinny build and a buzzed haircut.
The girl was abducted at about 6:30 a.m. Oct. 18. She was forced into the suspect's car in the 1100 block of Duncan Avenue in north Killeen.
At the time of the abduction, the suspect was driving a small, black, two-door coupe. The car may have been seen in the area of 18th Street, Duncan Avenue, Stewart Street or Alexander Street, according to a release from Killeen Police Department.
The girl was abducted as she walked to a bus stop. Police believe the man abducted her, took her to another location and assaulted her. He released her near where she was abducted less than an hour later.
Police have released a sketch of the suspect.
The incident remains under investigation by KPD and Killeen Independent School District police.
