Surveillance Video Shows Possible Sex Assault Suspect: PD



    Stamford police are seeking the public's help in identifying a man caught on surveillance camera who they believe sexually assaulted a woman last week.

    A man "accosted" a woman in the area of East Main Street by Grove Street in Stamford at about 7:40 p.m. on May 12.

    Police said the man was described as in his 20s and 5-foot-7 with medium build and had a close-cropped beard. He was wearing checkered shorts, a dark T-shirt that had a design on the front side and a baseball hat backward on his head, police said.

    He was caught on surveillance camera cutting behind the Sheraton hotel in the area and through a parking lot behind the Eagles Club to get to Grove Street, so he was likely familiar with the area, according to police.

    Police released surveillance footage on YouTube and while they acknowledged that the resolution is low, "anyone knowing this suspect may recognize him from his movement and clothing," police said.
