Nassau County police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who is wanted for alleged sexual misconduct against a girl in Roosevelt six months ago.

Jose Garcia was at a house on Denton Place in Roosevelt when he allegedly committed the act on the girl, who was described as younger than 18 years old, at 5 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013, police said. The suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction.

Sexual misconduct is defined in New York State law as engaging in sexual intercourse, oral sex or anal sex with another person without that person’s consent or engaging in sexual conduct with an animal or a dead human body.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Garcia’s arrest and conviction.

Detectives ask anyone who knows the whereabouts of the subject, or with any information about this crime to call the toll-free Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain confidential.
