Santa Cruz County sheriff’s investigators have released a sketch of a man who attempted to grab a 16-year-old girl in Boulder Creek last month. The girl had just gotten off of a bus in the 12000 block of state Highway 9 around 11 p.m. on July 26 when a man tried to grab her from behind, sheriff’s officials said. The man was only able to grab the girl’s hair, and when she screamed, he fled in a white Toyota truck, according to the sheriff’s office.

After the girl told her father what happened, he went to the area where the attempted assault occurred and saw a white 1993 or 1994 Toyota 4×4 pickup truck with a missing tailgate. The father said the truck looked slightly lifted and had new tires, deputies said. The victim described the suspect to investigators as a tall, thin white man in his 30s who stood about 6 feet tall. He had a bump on his nose, scruffy facial hair and light brown or blond hair, and was wearing jeans and a white tank top, deputies said. The girl told the sheriff’s office she had never seen the man before.
