ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) — Police have released a sketch of a man who allegedly robbed three teen girls and forced them to undress in north St. Louis last week.
Police said the man approached three girls - ages 12, 15 and 16 – in the 4400 block of Elmbank around 11:45 p.m. on July 23.
The suspect then reportedly pulled out a gun and demanded the girls’ cell phones.
According to reports, the suspect fondled two of the girls’ breasts after forcing the teens to remove their shirts. The suspect then told the girls to completely undress, exposing their genitals.
He then stole two of the girls’ cell phones and fled the scene.
The mother of two of the girls says her daughters are fine physically but are mentally traumatized by the frightening ordeal.
Police say the suspect is in mid 20’s, about 5-feet-9-inches tall. He has a thin build, medium length braids and was wearing a black baseball cap. He was armed with a semi automatic handgun, according to police.
