Help Needed to Catch a Sexual Predator

The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the community's help in identifying a sexual predator that attacked a 26-year-old female.

On July 31, 2009, at 7:24 p.m., the male suspect was standing near the 3rd and T Street watching the victim unload items from her car.  The suspect waited for the victim to enter her residence and then approached her door two times.  The suspect used a ruse to try and get the victim to open her door.  When the victim opened the door, the suspect forced his way into the residence.  The suspect attacked the victim and reached under her shirt.  The victim began to scream causing the suspect to leave.

A composite sketch of the suspect was completed in hopes that someone in the community will recognize him and contact the Police Department.

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.
