Police Still Searching for Suspect in Capital Crescent Trail Assault

Montgomery County Police released this sketch of a man they believe is the suspect in a sexual assault on the Capital Crescent Trail. They also note  this:

"Additionally, a white male riding a bicycle was observed in the area at the time of the assault and may have information that can assist investigators. The bicycle is similar to the one pictured below."

Note that they don't say the white male spotted on the bike is the suspect. Important distinction. 

Here's the police illustration of the type of bike the male rider was spotted using.

Finally, here are numbers to call if you believe you have any information for police:
