PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Philadelphia police have released a new video of a man wanted for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl on her way to school.

It happened down the street from Harding High School in the Frankford section of Philadelphia around 7:40 a.m. Thursday.

The School District of Philadelphia said a 13-year-old high school student was approached by a man she did not know.

The new video shows the accused predator approaching the child and putting his arm around her.
