Police seek help identifying sexual assault suspect

From Niesha Lofing:

Sacramento police are asking for help in identifying a man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl in River Park on Tuesday afternoon.

The girl was walking at about 1 p.m. along Sandburg Drive, near Glenn Hall Park, when a man approached her from behind and forced her into the women's public restroom, where he sexually assaulted her, police Sgt. Matt Young said.

The man left the area on foot, he said.

The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-40s, 5-foot-10, weighing 160 to 170 pounds, with medium-length brown hair. He had a salt-and-pepper beard and was wearing a gray shirt with writing on the front, blue jeans and white sneakers. The man had a Southern accent and spoke in a raspy voice, Young said.

The attacker's appearance was dirty, and he might be transient, he said.

Anyone with information is urged to call police detectives at (916) 808-0575 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP. Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
