Prince George's County Police are on an all-out manhunt for a man who they call a dangerous pedophile attacker who's proven to be elusive.

Police say the man, who is described to be bald with a goatee-style beard, approached the girl and sexually assaulted her in a wooded area last week in the 8800 block of Heathermore Boulevard before fleeing.

Officers on Friday walked door-to-door in the Marlton neighborhood in what they're calling an effort to get fresh eyes on this suspect and this vicious attack.

Police believe the suspect may still be in this area, so they're also checking for drivers who fit the suspect's description.

It’s a heavy show of force, alarming to residents. But police say this happening for a reason.

"We haven't had a case like this in a long time, where there's a sexual assault with an unknown suspect. So we want to make sure we exhaust all options,” says officer Harry Bond.
