From Kim Minugh:
A woman was sexually assaulted early Sunday morning in a parking lot near a busy Midtown intersection, according to Sacramento police.
She was walking on K Street between 19th and 20th streets about 1 a.m. when an unknown suspect grabbed her, pulled her into a parking lot and sexually assaulted her, said police spokesman Sgt. Norm Leong.
He would not discuss details of the assault, except to say that it was "violent."
The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, about 5-foot-9-inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds, Leong said. He had a medium build, light brown hair and was wearing a black beanie.
Leong said the incident is a reminder that crime happens even in places that otherwise feel safe.
"It's important to remember to be cognizant of your surroundings," Leong said. "If you're going to walk at night, even if it's in a busy area, try to bring a friend along."
