Sacramento woman kidnapped, sexually assaulted

By Kim Minugh

A woman was kidnapped at gunpoint in Del Paso Heights and then sexually assaulted by an unknown assailant Wednesday evening, according to Sacramento police.

The woman was getting into her parked car on the 800 block of Grand Avenue shortly before 6 p.m. when a stranger approached her, said police Sgt. Norm Leong.

The man pointed a gun at the woman and ordered her to move into the passenger seat, Leong said. He then drove her to an undisclosed location and sexually assaulted her, Leong said.

The man then fled on foot, Leong said.

The victim described the man to police as black and in his late 20s or early 30s, Leong said. She said her assailant weighed about 250 pounds and wore dark clothing.

Anyone with information about this assault is asked to call Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP.
