From Bill Lindelof:

SEXMUTT.JPGSacramento County Sheriff's deputies have released the sketch of a man (LEFT) they suspect sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl in Gold River.

The assault occurred July 17 when the teen and a friend were walking on the Gold River recreation trail near Willow Water Place when a man approached from behind.

"The suspect grabbed the victim, committed a sexual battery against her and then fled on foot," a sheriff's department press release states.

The suspect is described as white, in his mid-40s, about 5-feet, 7-inches tall, with a thin build and pale complexion. He had white hair and possibly stubble on his face.

He was wearing a baseball cap, a red short-sleeved shirt, dark shorts, white socks and white running shoes. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff's Department Sexual Assault Bureau at (916) 874-5070.
