Detectives investigating sexual assault of woman in Carmichael home

Detectives are investigating the sexual assault of a 30-year-old woman by a stranger who woke her as she slept in her Carmichael home Sunday, according to authorities.

The woman was awakened about noon to find an unknown man standing by her bed with a knife, according to a Sacramento County Sheriff's Department report.

The man ordered her to remove her clothes, removed his and sexually assaulted her, the report states.

The woman's Edgerton Way home was unlocked at the time, according to the Sheriff's Department.

"It sounds like the epitome of a scary-as-it-gets sex assault by a stranger," said sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos.

The suspect was described only as a white man between 20 and 30 years old, 5 feet tall and wearing dark clothing.
