On Sept. 21, police officials said the investigation into the school photographer was opened “after a female victim came forward to report a sexual assault” that allegedly occurred five days earlier “when the victim was getting her school picture taken.”

“During the investigation, a second victim from the same school came forward and reported a sexual assault by the same suspect,” officials said.

Police released the suspect’s photo and asked for any additional victims to come forward.
