Coral Gables police released a sketch Tuesday of a man detectives say sexually assaulted a woman and stole her property as she walked on Granada Boulevard earlier this month.

“We need to get this man off the street,” said Kelly Denham, a spokeswoman for Coral Gables police.

The woman was walking on the the 1300 block of Granada Boulevard just before 7 a.m. March 13 when a man grabbed her.

Police released few details about the attack including what was stolen.

Denham said the woman, who lives in Coral Gables, was able to work with detectives to come up with a sketch of her attacker.

“What happened to her was very traumatic,” she said.

Detectives previously released a brief description of the man: 35 years old, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, 170 pounds, bald, brown eyes and bushy eyebrows.

The man may be in a white SUV or van, police said.
