Pinellas County deputies need your help to find a man they say inappropriately grabbed a teenager.

The 15-year-old girl was leaving Seminole High School around 5 p.m. Friday night, heading home, when she says a man jumped out from some bushes and grabbed her behind.  The victim instantly took off running along Oakhurst Drive, and finally lost the guy about a half mile away near a shopping center.
She was able to give a description of the suspect to deputies, who just released a composite sketch.  
Now they are hoping you might recognize him so he can be caught before he tries to do this again.
