FONTANA, Ca.- A 61-year-old woman was nearly sexually assaulted while walking in the City of Fontana last month and police need help to identify the suspect.
The woman was walking eastbound on the Pacific Electric Trail between Oleander and Cypress on September 16, 2019, at 11:40 a.m. when the suspect walked up behind her, pulling her to the ground. As she wrestled to get away, the male suspect attempted to sexually assault her but the woman was able to get away. She fled to a nearby apartment complex, where the suspect followed but stopped and fled when he was confronted by a witness.
Surveillance footage was obtained showing the suspect, a Hispanic man in his 20’s who is around 5’7” tall with a medium build. He has short black hair and is clean shaven, police said. The suspect was seen wearing a black tank top with “California” on the front, blue jeans and dark work boots at the time of the incident.
Officers have increased patrols in the area and citizens are urged to report any suspicious activity to our dispatch center (909) 350-7700.
Please contact Detective Carlson (909) 854-8082 if you have any information regarding the identity of this suspect.
