$1,000 reward offered in Sacramento sexual assault

From Chelsea Phua:

The River Park Neighborhood Association is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl in August, according to a Sacramento Police Department news release Monday.

Authorities said the girl was walking along Sandburg Drive near Glenn Hall Park 1 p.m. Aug. 19 when the man approached the victim from behind and forced her into the women's restroom, where he sexually assaulted her.

He fled on foot in an unknown direction.

The attacker is described as white, in his mid 40s, 5-feet, 10-inches tall and weighing 160 to 170 pounds. He had medium-length brown hair and a full salt-and-pepper beard. He was wearing a grey shirt with writing on the front, blue jeans and white tennis shoes. He spoke with a raspy voice and a southern accent. His appearance was dirty and he looked homeless.

In addition to the Association's $1,000 reward, callers to Crime Alert at 916-443-HELP could also be eligible for another $1,000 reward and remain anonymous.
