When the victim refused the suspect’s offer for assistance, he grabbed her and pulled her a short distance to a nearby wooded area. The suspect (see attached composite sketch) had a large knife sheathed at his side, secured on a belt loop, but did not brandish it at the victim.
The suspect exposed his private parts to the victim and said that he intended to sexually assault her. This incident was interrupted by the arrival of the victim’s friend, which caused the suspect to flee the scene. A search of the area was conducted, but the suspect was not located.
The suspect in this case is described as a black male adult, between 40-42 years old, approximately 6’4” tall and weighing about 220 pounds. He has a stocky build, dark complexion, and short, curly hair.
He had a full beard during this incident, and was wearing a dirty, white T-shirt and camouflage pants. Anyone recognizing this suspect, or having information regarding this incident, is asked to call the Sheriff’s Sex Assault Bureau at (916) 874-5070.
