Milwaukee police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted in an attempted sexual assault on the city's north side.  
The incident happened on March 24, 2017 in the 2300 block of W. Roosevelt Drive.  During the incident the male suspect struck the female victim and tried to sexually assault her.  The victim fought back and was able to run away. 
The suspect is described as a black male, between 30-40 years old, 5’5” tall, 220 pounds, with a heavy build, medium complexion and braided hair.  He was last seen wearing a long-sleeved red shirt and dark baggy blue jeans.  The victim says he was driving a four-door, small, reddish/orange “square” car.  A composite sketch of the suspect is attached to this e-mail.  
George Greenlee, who works in the area, is outraged, and is trying to help police capture the suspect. 
"I think we need to be able to watch out for one another," he said.
Justin Singleton, a neighbor, said "You shouldn't have to force yourself on a woman, you can't endanger people's lives like that."
Anyone with any information is asked to call Milwaukee Police Sensitive Crimes at (414) 935-7405.
