NLVPD needs help Identifying assault suspect

Detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect from an assault that occurred in North Las Vegas in January.

Police say on January 19, officers responded to a church on the 1900 block of Glider Street, in reference to a report of an assault of a female teenager.

The male suspect fled before police arrived on scene.
