Guam Police Department Spokesman Paul Tapao released a video of a man wanted for questioning relative to the case.

The sexual assault occurred on Jan. 26 in broad daylight at 1:20 p.m. in the waters off of Fai Fai Beach in Tumon.

According to GPD Spokesperson Paul Tapao, the victim was approached by a male individual who spoke to her in broken English. When the woman told the suspect to move away, the suspect reportedly became angry and grabbed the victim then began pulling her out to deeper waters.
