Composite Released In Golden Gate Estates Suspicious Incident

Deputies are investigating after a teenage girl reported she was approached by a stranger in Golden Gate Estates on Monday morning.

The 15-year-old told deputies she was walking to her school bus stop on Wilson Boulevard when a man approached and asked her for “all her stuff.” The man then grabbed her left arm, but the girl said she was able to get away and run down 22nd Avenue Northwest while the man fled south on Wilson Boulevard.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office has released a composite image of the man based on the girl’s description.

Detectives said the man was described as Hispanic, around 5 feet 3 inches tall and around 150 pounds.

The girl also recalled seeing a dark colored vehicle driving down Wilson at the time. It is unknown whether the vehicle is related to the incident or may have witnessed something.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff’s Office at 239-252-9300, or if you wish to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
