A sketch of the man sought in the sexual assault of a small girl in Prince George’s County was released Tuesday by the police.

The assault on a 7-year-old occurred June 22 in the Marlton neighborhood of Upper Marlboro, the police said.

They said the assailant was described as a white man with an average build. At the time of the attack, police said, he had short cropped hair with a receding hair line and a goatee-style salt and pepper beard.

The sketch shows a goatee that appears to be about four inches long, and tapers to a point.

Police said he also had a piercing in the center of his tongue that was described as a round ball.
