9-Year-Old Sexually Assaulted in Sunview Park

A man lurking in Fort Lauderdale's Sunview Park Monday evening used a gun to force a 9-year-old into a port-o-pottie, where the boy was sexually assaulted, according to a report by the Broward Sheriff's Office.

The release is here.

The children described the man as tall and slim, with white or light brown skin and a clean-shaven face. He spoke English but is possibly Hispanic. He appeared to be in his 20s or 30s and wore jeans, a black jacket and a black ball cap with white lettering.
