The Fort Worth Police Department has released a second surveillance camera video of a person of interest in an attack on a 13-year-old girl at a school bus stop in west Fort Worth on April 19.

Police released fresh photos and a video Thursday that give a clearer picture of a person of interest in the April 19 brutal attack on a 13-year-old girl as she walked to her school bus.

Authorities also released a photo of a vehicle similar to the one police believe the man might have been seen in or might be driving.

The new photos show the man in stores.

Last week, police released a photo and video of the man as he walked out of a business.

The girl was attacked shortly before 7 a.m. April 19 near Calmont Avenue and Laredo Drive as she walked to a bus stop. She is a student at International Newcomer Academy in the Fort Worth school district.

The student was approached by a man who asked her for help, and then beat her.

The 13-year-old fought him off and walked to the bus.

A bus driver called 911 saying a student had stepped onto the bus and was bleeding. The bus is not equipped with a camera.

The girl was taken to Cook Children's Medical Center, where she remains. Police said Thursday that her condition is improving.

Police described the person of interest as a white man, about 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, weighing about 200 pounds with dark hair and facial hair, a thin mustache and beard.

At the time of the attack, he was wearing jeans, a gray shirt, a dark baseball cap, a black pullover sweatshirt and a dark color backpack.

Anyone with information should call police at 817-392-4430 or Crime Stoppers at 817-469-8477.
