At around 10 p.m. on Friday, a sexual assault took place in South Davis, according to the Davis Police Department.
A man grabbed the 17-year-old female victim from behind, who was walking west on Cowell Boulevard near Koso Street.
A struggle ensued as the suspect grabbed the victim’s shirt and buttocks. The victim screamed and fought back, forcing the suspect to flee.
The victim’s mother sent a message about the incident to The Aggie via Facebook.
“It is important to inform women in Davis that there is a predator out there and to make sure they do NOT walk alone, not even for just a few blocks, like my daughter,” she said.
The suspect is described as a Latino male, 25 to 35 years old, about 5’10” tall, stocky and with black buzzed hair. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and unknown colored pants.
