Investigators with the Clinton Police Department are investigating a report of a man inappropriately touching a 15-year-old girl early Monday morning.
According to reports, the 15-year-old Hispanic female was at an apartment complex, located in the 200 block of E. Morrisey Blvd., visiting a friend around 1:09 a.m. Monday morning. At some point an older Hispanic male came into the apartment and allegedly tried to touch the teen inappropriately.
The girl ran to the next apartment and begged the residents to call police. A 34-year-old male obliged and kept the girl safe until investigators arrived. When investigators were at the scene, the older suspect allegedly involved in the incident was gone.
Officials at the Clinton Police Department noted that the girl was scared, but not injured in the incident.
Investigators are still searching for the suspect, identified only as an older Hispanic male.
