53 year old Jack Doolittle of Solvay has been charged with the attack that happened   in broad daylight near Hazard Street Middle school in 1997. 

The sixth grade girl was using a shortcut to school when Doolittle, wearing a mask and brandishing a gun pulled her into a secluded area and sexually assaulted her.

Doolittle was arraigned in Onondaga County Court on charges including:

  • Two counts of first-degree sodomy
  •  First-degree attempted rape
  •  Kidnapping
  •  Fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon
  • Child endangerment
