8:43 a.m. TUESDAY, AUG. 30 | This just in from city of San Marcos spokesperson Trey Hatt:

San Marcos police are seeking a man whom they say kidnapped and sexually assaulted an elementary school-aged girl yesterday.

At about 6:02 p.m. Aug. 29, SMPD responded to a possible kidnapping and sexual assault of a girl in the 800 block of Bracewood Circle. 

Investigation revealed the girl was outside her residence when a white car pulled up to the apartments. According to the victim, the man driving the car asked her for help because his back was hurt and pulled her into the car when she went over to help.

Police say the male drove to and parked in a nearby parking lot where he exposed himself to the girl and assaulted her.

The girl told him she needed to go home, and he let her out of the car. She walked home in the rain and told her mother what happened. The victim’s mother then contacted SMPD. 

· Time frame for the incident is 5:30 – 6 p.m.

· The suspect described as a skinny white or Hispanic male with short black hair and a short black beard, possibly a goatee. No age range was given.

· The girl said the car she was pulled into looked similar to a 2011 Nissan Sentra with a possible dent on driver’s side

The primary detective for this case is Det. Tiffany Williams at 512-753-2306. The San Marcos Police Department is asking for anyone who has information to contact the San Marcos Police Department at 512-753-2300 8 a.m. -5 p.m. Monday through Friday or 512-753-2108 after hours.   

Tips can be made to Citizen Observer or Hays County Crime Stoppers.
