Police Search for Kissing Assault Suspect
LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. — Police are looking for a man suspected of assaulting a woman in a Lee’s Summit strip mall.
Police said on Oct. 1, a white male approached a woman inside a store and made comments to her. He continued to follow her, and at one point, police said he grabbed her and attempted to kiss her.
On Friday, police released surveillance pictures of the suspect and said the Oct. 1 incident may not be the only time the suspect has assaulted a woman.
“We want to identify our suspect. We want to get a hold of him and make an arrest,” said Sgt. Chris Depue, Lee’s Summit police. “They may have been other victims. We want to know if someone else had contact with this person, but didn’t think that much of it that day, but now, seeing the pictures and car description, they’re going to remember and we’re hoping to get those calls as well.”
Police described the suspect as a white male in his early twenties, 5’7″ and approximately 180 pounds. He left in a newer model black Hyundai sport utility.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Lee’s Summit Police Department at 816.969.1752.
