Flashing, sexual assault in Pocket-Greenhaven might be same man

Sacramento police are investigating whether the same man exposed himself on the street and later sexually assaulted a woman on Thursday in the Pocket-Greenhaven area.

In the first incident, a man was seen exposing himself around Royal Garden Avenue and Havenside Drive at about 6:45 a.m. Police searched the area but no suspect was found.

A police activity log said that crime scene investigators were called in and detectives were notified to follow up on the case.

Then, about 8:45 p.m., a pedestrian along a waterway near the 7300 block of Gloria Drive was approached from behind by a man. The man reached around and briefly touched her.

The heavyset man in his 20s ran away. A search aided by a police helicopter failed to find the perpetrator.

Police believe the incidents could be related.
