Police ask public’s help to ID man; alleged sexual assault of vulnerable adult

ST. GEORGE – The St. George Police Department is asking for the public’s help Tuesday in identifying a man who was allegedly involved in a sexual assault of a vulnerable adult last week.

Police are investigating the sexual assault which allegedly occurred on Sept. 16 between noon and 2:15 p.m., according to a media statement issued by the St. George Police Department.

“This particular case is disturbing because the victim of the sexual assault is a vulnerable adult who was driven from the area around her residence to other locations where the assault occurred,” the statement said. “The suspect took advantage of the diminished capacities of the victim.”

Detectives said leads have been developed in this case and information is being investigated, but they are asking for the public’s help in providing any information that may help identify the man captured in the photographs below.

The suspect was driving what appears to be a Mazda 626, police said.

Anyone who recognizes the man in the photos or has any information about his identity or the incident in question is asked to call the St. George Police Department at 435-627-4300 or Detective Dunbar at 435-627-4328. Reference Incident No. 15P021931.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

    I wonder if that is a Habibian. There are plenty of strange people in that family. It happens to look more like Sherm the Worm if he’s lost a couple of pounds.
