Stockton Police are searching for a man suspected of sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl.
Investigators say the girl was playing with a friend in front of a home on Bernay Court. A man approached them and offered the kids money, police said.
When the girl took the money, officers say the man grabbed her and inappropriately touched her. The girl then pushed the man away and ran home, police said.
Her friend ran to a neighbor’s house to call for help.
The suspect was described by police as an Asian male in his 60s or 70s with a black hat, black sweatshirt, red and black plaid shorts and no teeth. He was riding a black and red mountain bike with a basket.
Police say neighbors confronted the man and he rode off.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Stockton Police or Crime Stoppers.
