HOLLYWOOD (CBSMiami) – The Hollywood Police Department has released the sketch of a man they said sexually assaulted a woman at a spa.
Detectives said the man, who had a Latin accent, assaulted a worker at the East Jing Spa at 5108 State Road Seven.
It happened Sunday at 11 p.m. at the spa which advertises Asian massage services.
“The man entered the spa and sexually battered the women. Obviously, it’s a scary situation,” said Hollywood Police Department spokeswoman Miranda Grossman. “We are doing all we can to find this individual, that’s where we need the public’s help.”
Hollywood police passed out flyers with a sketch of the he assailant at plazas along State Road 7, where there are many more spas offering massages.
At the plaza where this happened, there are an additional five spas. One business put up a flyer on their door.
CBS4’s Joan Murray showed the sketch to patrons of the plaza.
“Think it’s a terrible thing, but he doesn’t look familiar to me,” said Christina Hampton.
“I’m not surprised. I mean it’s not the best area,” said Kendra Cargill. “Outside of the Hard Rock you have this area that’s not so great.”
Police describe the assailant as a white or Hispanic male in his mid-20s to mid-30s. He is 5 feet 7 inches tall, 140 pounds, with dark hair, dark eyes and a medium complexion.
