Composite sketch released



          Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Anthony A. Caputo, director of the New Brunswick Police Department, today released a composite sketch of a suspect who accosted a 24-year-old woman in January.


The suspect is described as a heavy-set, Hispanic male with a dark complexion, between the ages of 30 and 40, five-feet, eight-inches tall, with dark “spiked” hair and no facial hair. He was wearing dark pants and a black, zippered hooded jacket.


The suspect last was seen fleeing on Townsend Street toward Joyce Kilmer Avenue shortly after 2:30 a.m. on January 31, 2014.


An investigation determined that the woman was walking on Townsend Street between Livingston and Joyce Kilmer avenues in New Brunswick when the man walked up to her, punched her in the face several times, improperly touched her and attempted to further sexually assault her. He fled when she kicked him and screamed.


The woman went to a residence, where neighbors called police.


The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator James Kelly of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3600, or Detective Ronoldy Martinez of the New Brunswick Police Department at (732) 745-5217.
