The Sacramento Police Department is releasing a composite sketch of a man who attacked a woman with the intent to sexually assault her.  Detectives hope that someone will recognize him and come forward with information needed to identify him.

On Friday, August 13, 2010, the adult female victim was inside her home near Sandcastle Way and Seamist Drive.  Shortly after 11:30 p.m., she was alone in her bedroom when she heard noises near her back door.  She then heard an unfamiliar man make a sexual comment to her.  As the victim turned towards his direction, the suspect physically assaulted her by punching and kicking her.  The victim screamed for help.  The suspect suddenly stopped the attack and ran out of the house.
