Attempted sexual assault in North Davis apartment complex

On Tuesday Oct. 28, a male suspect attempted to sexually assault a female around 10:30 p.m. in the 600 block of Alvarado Ave. near Anderson Rd.

According to a press release by the Davis Police Department (DPD), the female victim had returned to her apartment complex and parked her car when the suspect confronted her and attempted to sexually assault her in the parking lot. The female defended herself so she was able to escape from the attacker. Police arrived on scene shortly after, but were unable to locate the suspect.

Lt. Glen Glasgow from the DPD, said the police have a detailed description of the suspect which they are using in their investigation. However, they cannot release too much information at this time because it is an ongoing investigation.

The press release by the DPD states that the suspect was described as an African American male, 5’11” tall, weighing 220 pounds, a wide-set nose, bald with a salt-and-pepper beard and about 40 years old; the suspect was last seen wearing a black jacket and dark colored pants.

Glasgow said this seems to be an isolated event, and there hasn’t been an incident of this nature for while. “Its not part of a series of incidents,” Glasgow said.

Anyone who witnessed the event, or has any information that could lead to the suspect’s identity should contact the DPD at 530-747-5400.
