Prince George's County Police are asking for the public's help finding a man who sexually assaulted a woman in her 90s.

Officials said the woman was assaulted in her Riverdale home on Friday, and police have been searching the neighborhood and handing out fliers.

Police say that at 9:40 p.m. on Friday, patrol officers were called to the 6100 block of 63rd Avenue for the report of a sexual assault. When they arrived, they learned the female victim who they described as elderly, had just been sexually assaulted by a man who broke into her home. The Washington Post reported the woman was in her 90s.

The woman described the assailant as Hispanic, or Pacific Islander, with dark curly hair, about 20-years-old, 150-pounds, and 5-foot two-inches in height.

County police Chief Mark Magaw calls the crime "egregious," and says detectives are determined to find and arrest the responsible person.

Julie Parker, police spokeswoman, urged anyone who saw anything to pick up the phone. "If anyone notice anything unusual, at around 9:40 last night, if they could give us a call, it might not seem like a big deal to them but that little bit of information could be just what our detectives need."

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Prince George’s County Police Department’s Sexual Assault Unit at 301-772-4908.

In the meantime?? There should be a special place here on Earth for this Man, like chained to a post in the center of town so the HUMAN race can exact a very SPECIAL kind of punishment on him. Then let the Devil himself have this piece of crap.

Omg. What do you say to this! C'mon people speak up, even the slightest bit of info. OR if it sounds suspiciously like a friend or relative, bc of the description, and perhaps missing at the time of this attrocity. Prayers for the poor , elderly victim!!!! I know many elderly people in Riverdale, guess this can be anywhere; however , I'm calling them today to remind them to put security first. All for it Teresa, all for it...

This thing should be hopefully picked up and given the same treatment he gave that poor lady. I can not find any sympathy for him and don't want to hear his lame excuses. And I definitely don't want taxpayers money going out to feed, house, or have doctors try to treat him. Monsters do exist and here is proof.
