Teen suspect wanted in attempted rape of 40-year-old woman

Police are searching for a teen accused of attempting to rape a woman on Southern Boulevard.



Investigators say last month, the suspect approached a 40-year-old woman as she was exiting her car near Tiffany Street.



They say he exposed himself and tried to pull the woman's pants down. When the victim fought back, the suspect then ran off.



Police believe the suspect is around 16 years old.



Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
