TRAVERSE CITY — City police released a video that shows the man who they believe sexually assaulted a Traverse City boy at an apartment complex.

Police said the boy, 8, was playing with friends at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center skate park Thursday evening before he headed to an apartment complex across the road in the 200 block of Fair Street. A man followed the boy to the complex, police said, waited for the child to enter the door code of the building, then trailed the youth into a lobby area and assaulted him.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Traverse City Police Department Detective Bureau at 231-995-5152 or the Silent Observer tip line at 231-947-TIPS (8477).
