The New York Police Depart­ment has released video and pho­tos of a sus­pect­ed preda­tor accused of sex­u­al­ly assault­ing a 13-year-old girl in a Queens park last week.

The attack occurred around 3:30 pm on Thurs­day in Kisse­na Park in Flush­ing Mead­ows. Accord­ing to the NYPD, the sus­pect approached the 13-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy, pulled a “machete-style” blade, and forced the pair to a seclud­ed area of the 235-acre park.

The sus­pect then tied the chil­dren’s hands with shoelaces and sex­u­al­ly assault­ed the young girl. He sub­se­quent­ly took the teens’ phones and told them to wait 20 min­utes before leav­ing, police said.

The NYPD has released video and pho­tos of the sus­pect­ed preda­tor, described as a light-skinned man in his 20s with a heavy Span­ish accent and a dis­tinc­tive tat­too of a boar or sim­i­lar ani­mal with red eyes and horns on his left chest.

Inves­ti­ga­tors were able to con­firm video of the sus­pect on the perime­ter of the park days after the attack, and a $10,000 reward has been offered for infor­ma­tion lead­ing to his arrest.

The sex­u­al assault has left the sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ty on edge, with local res­i­dents express­ing con­cerns about the safe­ty of their chil­dren in the park. “Every­body is tense since the news because we all have small chil­dren that are play­ing here, and it hap­pened in the day,” one father told The New York Post.

The NYPD is urg­ing any­one with infor­ma­tion about the sus­pect to con­tact author­i­ties imme­di­ate­ly. “Let’s show him how New York­ers come togeth­er to stop evil—he can run, but he can’t hide, we will catch him,” said Deputy Com­mis­sion­er Kaz Daughtry.
