Surveillance video of person of interest in girl’s attack
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.
