Identity of Sex Assault Suspect Sought
Sheriff's detectives are seeking assistance to identify a man wanted in connection to two sex assaults in the Arden Arcade area in recent weeks. The same suspect is believed to be responsible for both incidents, and investigators believe that the public can help in bringing this person to justice.
On November 23, 2012, a woman in her 20's was attacked inside her apartment in the 3100 block of Trussel Way. The suspect was described as a white or Hispanic male, 5'8" to 6' tall and weighing between 180 and 220 pounds with a medium to stocky build. He wore a grey, hooded sweatshirt and a white bandana that covered his face. The suspect entered the victim's apartment through an unlocked point of entry, and sexually assaulted the victim before fleeing.
Two weeks later, on December 7, 2012, a male with the same physical description forced a woman in her 30's into her apartment in the 2200 block of Howe Avenue. In this case, the suspect wore a black watchcap. He also sexually assaulted this victim before fleeing the apartment.Composite sketches (see attached) have been prepared in connection with both of these incidents. Anyone believing they know the identity of the individual depicted in the sketches is asked to call the Sheriff's Sex Assault Bureau at (916) 874-5070. Information may also be given anonymously at www.sacsheriff.com, texted to 274637 (CRIMES) and entering the keyword SSD, or called in to (916) 874-TIPS (8477).
