Teen wanted after sexual assault

Durham police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a teen wanted in a sexual assault investigation.

At approximately 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8, police responded to the area of Dartmoor Street and Andover Street for a call about a suspicious male. According to police, a male suspect knocked on the residence’s door and a female inside answered, following which the suspect pushed his way inside. Once inside, the suspect spoke to the female in a sexually inappropriate manner before touching her inappropriately when he attempted to hug her.

The suspect is described as a white male, between 14 and 15 years old, approximately five feet and five inches tall with a thin build and has blonde hair. He was last seen wearing a grey American Eagle T-shirt, black shorts, blue runners and a white bicycle helmet.

Anyone with information on this investigation is asked to call Det. Ahee at 1-888-579-1520, ext. 5234.
