The East Hampton Town Police Department’s detective division is seeking the public’s help in identifying a man shown in a composite sketch who they say “forcibly attempted to touch a female while she was in a store at the Gosman’s complex,” in Montauk last August.

The man, police say, is white and has a pronounced eastern European accent, is of thin build, stands about 5’ 8” tall, has brown hair, and was wearing a red T-shirt at the time of the incident. The actual complaint was made on about September 30.

Police recently began circulating a flyer with the composite sketch of the suspect, which is based upon a witness’ description of the man, at various Montauk locations.

Anyone with information that could be helpful in identifying the suspect can contact detectives at 631-537-7575. The identity of all callers will be kept confidential.
