      Man sexually assaulted young girl in convenience store

      The Roscommon County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl at a convenience store in Roscommon.

      The Roscommon County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl at a convenience store in Roscommon.

      The assault happened on July 11 around 6 p.m.

      According to the Sheriff's Office, the man entered the store behind the 12-year-old girl and her mother. Shortly after that, he assaulted the young girl in one of the aisles of the store and immediately left.

      Officials say video evidence indicates that he was not in the store for shopping and did not buy anything. It appears, they say, as though he entered the store with the intent of assaulting the young girl.

      The man is described as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall with a slender build. He has short cropped dark hair and a dark colored beard. He was wearing light-colored pants, flip-flops and a green shirt with white lettering on the back. The slogan on the shirt started with the words "Get A" and continued with smaller lettering underneath.

      Anyone with information about the incident, or anyone that can identify the man, is asked to call the Roscommon County Sheriff's Office at 989-275-5101.
