san diego robber/rapist targeting asian women

This week in San Diego, a 29-year-old woman was robbed and sexually assaulted in her home, in what police believe may be the sixth in a series of home-invasion robberies targeting Asian women: Home invasion believed to be latest targeting Asians.

The woman had just arrived home after shopping with her 18-month-old son and had taken the toddler into her apartment and come back outside to retrieve some belongings. As she was going back inside, the man grabbed her from behind and threatened her with a knife, demanding money. He then sexually assaulted the woman and left.

The man was described as white or Latino, about 30 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a black jacket, jeans and black shoes.

Investigators believe he may be the same man responsible for at least five other attacks since June, in which victims were similiarly threatened with a knife, robbed, and in all but one case, raped or sexually assaulted. All the victims were Asian women between the ages of 20 and 48.

Anyone with information regarding this case or the series is asked to contact the SDPD at 619-531-2299, the UCSD Police Department at 858-534-4358 or Crime Stoppers' anonymous tip line at 888-580-8477. More here: Police: Home Invasion, Sex Assault Part Of Series.
