UPDATE: St. Peters Police Search for Sexual Assault Suspect
ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOX) - St. Peters Police will be adding extra patrols Wednesday to look for a man who approached two other men early this morning and asked them for sexual favors.
The first victim was walking from his car to his home on Church Street near Mid Rivers Mall Drive. The second was delivering newspapers in the same area.
“He took one step forward to me, reached his hand out, grabbed my private area, gave a big pull and asked if there was anyway he could interest me in…” one of the victims told KMOX.
St. Peters Police Officer Melissa Doss says that in both cases, which occurred about an hour-and-a-half apart, the victim said “no” but the suspect didn’t stop.
“When the victim refused, the suspect reached out and inappropriately touched the victim,” Doss explained.
The suspect is believed to be about 30-years-old, male, and white. He is 5’10” tall, weighs roughly 165 pounds, and has short black hair.
The suspect was wearing a white t-shirt and way-too-long gray sweatpants at the time of the alleged sexual assaults.
