    KENT, Wash. - Deputies with the King County Sheriff’s Office released a sketch Wednesday of a suspect in a recent sexual assault. 

    Officials said a 15-year-old student at Kentlake High School reported being sexually assaulted while walking home from school around 2:40 p.m. May 2. 

    The sexual assault is alleged to have happened near the 21400 block of SE Falcon Way in Kent. 

    The student told deputies she was walking through a park when the man grabbed her arm and touched her groin area. 

    In a news release, deputies described the man as “having brown skin, possibly Hispanic or East Indian. He was 30-40 years old with an average height and build.”

    Deputies said the man had dark hair that was short but wavy on top and his face was unshaven.  

    “He had a scar or mark on his right eyebrow and a green-colored tattoo on his left clavicle/neck area. His teeth are crooked and stained like a smoker’s teeth,” officials said. 

    The man was last seen wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt and long, black sweatpants that covered his feet, deputies said. 

    Anyone with information on the incident and/or the man is asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.
