The Sacramento Police Department is looking for a man who tried to sexually assault a woman Tuesday night along 50th Avenue, police officials said.

The woman, in her 20s, was walking home near the 2600 block of 50th Avenue when a man in a minivan asked her for directions, police said. The driver asked if the woman would get in the car with him, and when she refused, the woman noticed that the man had exposed himself, police said.

When the woman tried to walk away, the man exited the car and tried to sexually assault her, police said. The woman was able to flee after a short struggle.

The suspect (left photo) is described as a male between 18 and 21 years old, police said. He stands about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs between 160-170 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and jeans. His minivan is described as older and either blue or gray, police said.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Sacramento Police Department at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.
