As a 14-year old girl waited at the Dadeland South Metrorail Train/Bus Station earlier this week, a man in his 20s grabbed her wrist, hit her in the stomach, dragged her to the second-floor platform and attempted to sexually molest her, Miami-Dade police said.
The incident, which police are calling “lewd and lascivious molestation,” happened around 9 a.m. Monday at the station, 9150 Dadeland Blvd.
Police say the man “attempted to remove the victim’s pants and touch her vagina,” but she was able to break free.
The man is described as being 5-feet, 6-inches tall, with long dreads, brown eyes, a medium build, full beard and mustache, and gold teeth. He was last seen wearing a cream-colored, button-down shirt, blue jean shorts and dirty sneakers.
Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
