Manatee Sheriff "Hunting" Suspect Accused of Raping 5-year-old

Authorities say the man in this video sweet-talked the little girl and bought her candy before taking her to an abandoned trailer not far from her home and raping her.

The suspect tried to get away on a city bus, but was not allowed on because he was not at the designated bus stop after the incident. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact @ManateeSheriff at 941-747-3011 or Crime Stoppers at 866-634-TIPS.
