KINGMAN - Kingman police detectives continue to seek the public's help in identifying a suspect in a Jan. 9 home invasion that resulted in an attempted sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl, and are providing a more complete description of the suspect.
The incident occurred at a home on Lovin Avenue. The girl was at the home with some of her siblings when a man came to the door and asked to use a phone. No adults were present at the time.
The child who answered the door told the man no, according to Chris Nelson, a relative who was not at the home at the time. He has spoken to the girl and her siblings.
Nelson said the man forced his way into the home after being denied the use of a phone and "threatened to slit the girl's throat."
The girl's brother, 15, gathered the remaining siblings into a bedroom and lifted them outside through a window.
The suspect fled on foot.
Described as a white male in his late teens to early 20s, the suspect is between 5-foot-10 and 6-foot-1. He is very thin, weighing between 140 and 160 pounds, with short brown hair and a "patchy" brown beard. The KPD previously reported the suspect was white, tall and thin.
The suspect was wearing a lip ring and has a non-colored tattoo depicting flames on his left forearm, according to detectives and descriptions provided to Nelson by the girl and her siblings.
A reward has been offered for information leading to the suspect's apprehension and arrest.

Please, someone turn this scumbag in. Such a man too. Threatens a 13 year old girl and invades a home. Sooner or later, with a little luck, he'll invade the wrong home and it will be the last act of idiocy he ever does!
