He approached the girl on July 19 in the 2600 block of West Peterson, pulled her into the stall of a portable toilet and assaulted her, police said.

“In an attempt to avoid suspicion, the offender portrayed himself as the victim’s father,” police said in an alert. The girl escaped and alerted authorities.
