Snoqualmie police are investigating the possible assault of a 16-year-old girl who a man grabbed while the girl was walking to baseball practice at Mount Si High School on Friday, March 16.

At 1 p.m., police officers responded to a call reporting a possible assault at the corner of Meadowbrook Way Southeast and Southeast Park Street.

Police were told a man, possibly in his 30s, grabbed the girl but immediately let go and walked away. The girl went to her coach and told her what happened and the coach called 911. Police investigated the area and used a police dog to track the suspect, but the suspects trail ended and officers assumed he got into a vehicle and drove away.

Sergeant Paul Graham said the officers are currently working on leads and developing a sketch of the man’s face based on his description.
