Woodland woman reports assault by intruder armed with knife

Woodland police are trying to locate a man who reportedly entered a home and raped a woman at knifepoint early Wednesday.

Officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Oak Avenue about 3 a.m. regarding a report of a rape in progress. When they arrived, they found the victim at a neighbor's house. She told them she thought the suspect was still in her home, according to a Police Department news release.

Officers went to the house but did not find the suspect inside. A search of the surrounding area also proved fruitless.

Police said the crime scene was processed and evidence was located.

The victim told officers that she was awakened by a suspect armed with a knife. She said he disrobed her with the knife and sexually assaulted her. At some point during the assault, she was able to escape and run to the neighbor's home to call police.

The woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries but was taken to an area hospital for examination.

The suspect was described as white or Latino, with a medium build and wearing a black beanie-type hat.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the Woodland Police Department at (530) 661-7800.
