A woman said that she was forced behind a building in North Sacramento and sexually assaulted by a stranger Wednesday night, according to Sacramento police.
The woman, who is in her 20s, told police she was waiting for a friend near the light-rail station at Arden Way and Del Paso Boulevard shortly after 8:30 p.m. when an unknown man approached her and physically forced her behind a nearby building, said Sacramento police Sgt. Norm Leong.
The woman said the man sexually assaulted her and fled, Leong said.
The suspect was described to police as a black man in his late 20s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 185 pounds, Leong said.
