Missoula police have identified a 15 year-old high school student as the suspect who approached a 6 year-old girl on Tuesday afternoon and asked inappropriate sexual questions.

Missoula Detective Sergeant Travis Welsh says school resource officers assisted authorities in identifying and contacting the suspect, who confessed to the incident.

Police have determined that no crime was committed, and no arrest was made, however, officers are looking into what may have led the student to approach the 6 year-old girl in that manner, so that he might receive help if needed.
