Police are looking for a man who kidnapped and sexually assaulted a 6-year-old Santa Ana girl before releasing her hours later, the Orange County Register is reporting

Santa Ana police have released a composite drawing of the suspect, described as a heavyset Hispanic man in his 30s or 40s.

The girl was playing outside a Santa Ana apartment complex Sunday evening when the man approached and told her he had something for her mother. Police say he then picked the girl up, carried her to his car and drove off. It's believed the girl was sexually attacked in a nearby parking lot, and dropped off about two hours later. 

Anyone with information about the abduction or sexual assault should call investigators at 714-245-8665.
