Miami Crime: 14-Year-Old Raped in Little Haiti This Morning on the Way to School
Miami Police are looking for a rapist after a brazen sexual assault on a girl on her way to school this morning.
Just after 8 a.m., a 14-year-old girl was walking through Little Haiti along NW First Avenue. As she waited for traffic to slow at NW 57th Street, a man in his 30s approached her from behind, Officer Jeffrey Giordano tells Riptide.
The girl felt a knife in her back. The man forced her behind a house a block away, at 61 NW 57th St., where he sexually assaulted her and threatened to kill her.
Based on the victim's description, police are looking for a light-skinned black man, about 5' 11" and 210 pounds. He was wearing a white tank top and light jeans, Giordano says. And his fingernails were dirty.
Anyone with info should call police at 305-603-6300.
