Police Need Help to Locate Home Invasion Suspect

The Sacramento Police Department is looking for 34-year-old Stephen Dyser for charges of burglary, robbery, and an assault with intent to commit a sexual offense that occurred last week near Fruitridge Road and Ortega Street.

On August 18, 2009, at 3:15 a.m., a female victim woke up to a male subject on top of her holding a knife.  The victim fearing that she would be sexually assaulted began to scream and fight back.  The suspect struck the victim but the victim continued to fight back.  The suspect then fled the area. 

Detectives received information that Stephen Dyser may be the person responsible in this case.  Evidence was located that linked Dyser as being the suspect. 

Stephen Dyser is described as a male Black, 5'10", 160 lbs, black hair and brown eyes.  (See attached photos).

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES).  Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.  Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
