Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to contact detectives at (916) 874-5115.

  1. I’m a single woman living in the area of this attack. I called the Sheriff’s non-emergency # because of the vague description given by the helicopter speaker flying overhead. It wasn’t clear if this was an elderly person lost, a mentally challenged person who would need help or a dangerous man on the run. There was no approximate age or race given. Calling in wasn’t much more helpful. Since I was sitting alone on the patio at this time I would have appreciated more information being given. It really angers me that by not giving MORE DETAILED INFO, untold numbers of women, of all ages that were out and about during this time were put at risk to become his next victim. It’s unbelievable! If you want help locating someone give pertinent information that would help identify and individual and not 75% of the male population.Is it policy to give generic, useless information? I sure wouldn’t bother calling in as it would be calling upon seeing any tall, thin man, of any age with white shirt, dark pants and short brown hair. If it wasn’t so serious it would be laughable. In the future give as detailed information as possible to keep us safe, please!
