, March 29, 2021
An alert from Miami-Dade police asks for help finding or identifying the man they say inflicted an armed sexual assault on a 12-year-old boy before shooting him and sending him to the hospital in critical condition during Saturday’s first hours.
Police describe the man as between 30 and 40 years old, tall, white Hispanic male with long, curly hair and driving a black, 4-door car.
They say the boy was walking in Brownsville, near Northwest 43rd Terrace and 30th Avenue between 2 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. when the man rolled up on him and forced the boy into the car. He drove him to the nearby area of Northwest 45th Street and 30th Avenue for the assaulting and the shooting.
After being kicked out of the car, the boy walked to a nearby open business and called 911. MIami-Dade Fire Rescue took him to Ryder Trauma Center at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital. (Miami Herald)
