A man suspected of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl is back on the loose.

Prince George's County police say that 27-year-old John Henri Palmont was accidentally released Friday night.

Palmont was arrested Friday for the August 3 assault in the Capitol Heights area, where he is also from.

The girl let him in, and then he displayed a handgun before sexually assaulting her.
