Sacramento Sheriff: Woman sexually assaulted in van Thursday night

A woman was sexually assaulted Thursday evening by a man who picked her up in a van, according to authorities.

The 39-year-old woman was walking in the area of Orange Grove and Watt avenues when she was approached by a man in his 30s driving a van, said Sacramento County sheriff's Deputy Jason Ramos.

The woman voluntarily got into the van, but when she later tried to leave, the man would not let her, Ramos said. He drove her to the 1300 block of Silica Avenue, sexually assaulted her and then left her there, Ramos said.

She called 911 and Sacramento police responded, then called the Sheriff's Department because the incident began in the county.

Ramos declined to release further details because of the ongoing investigation.
