Police Search For Suspects Accused Of Assaulting Young Girl

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Police in the city's Overbrook section are looking for two suspects who are accused of assaulting a young girl.

According to authorities, a 12-year-old girl told police she was walking home from school when she was approached around 7:30 a.m. Friday morning.

Neighbors are disgusted and want the suspects off the streets..

The Philadelphia Police Special Victims Unit say two men stepped in front of the child, one touched her chest, while the second man tried to lift the girl's skirt.

"It's crazy. You have to be more protective of your kids, more aware, be more aware of strange people in the neighborhood," said resident Gwendolyn Perry.

As word of the incident spread, parents who live in the area of 5800 Malvern where the alleged incident occured vowed to be on the lookout.

"This is supposed to be a quiet area where everybody supposed to be neighborhood watch it's crazy, it's really crazy. It makes me afraid to. I feel like I want to be out here, watching kids go to school and making sure they're safe," said resident Hakeima Hintonn.

Police only have a vague description of the suspects. They are believed to be in their 20's.
