Sacramento police return to Discovery Park in wake of rape

Sacramento police returned to Discovery Park last night looking for clues to help find a man who raped a woman on Wednesday in a Discovery Park public restroom.

"We had officers out there for two reasons: to re-canvass some people who may have been out there the night before and to provide extra security," said police spokesman Sgt. Norm Leong.

However, police have nothing new on the attack.

The woman was at the park for a company barbeque when she was attacked about 8 p.m. Wednesday. She walked into the restroom at the park near the Garden Highway and Truxel Road when she was grabbed and sexually attacked, police said.

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying her attacker, only described as someone wearing dark pants and dark shoes.

The police asked anyone with information to call Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357.

Callers may remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
