Sheriff looking for man accused of attacking 3 girls

Girls allegedly sexually assaulted at grandparents' East Side home

Pima County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a man accused of sexually assaulting three young girls in a home on the city's East Side early Monday morning.

The girls, ages 6, 8, and 10, were visiting their grandparents' home with their mother in the 11100 block of E. Mountain Gate, near Snyder Road and Catalina Highway. The man, described as white, in his 20s and wearing glasses, allegedly got inside the home and assaulted the girls in the bedroom where they were sleeping around 2 a.m., said PSCD spokeswoman Deputy Dawn Barkman.

The girls said they did not know the man, Barkman said.

Police released a composite sketch of the suspect, who was last seen wearing dark shorts, a green sleeveless shirt and dark-colored glasses, Barkman said.

Although drawing no links to the case of missing 6-year-old Isabel Celis, Tucson Police spokesman Lt. Fabian Pacheco said Monday afternoon that the department is working with PCSD's Crime Against Children Unit on the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
