Cops seek man lurking in bushes

By
February 17, 2011 |

Davis police are seeking a man who attacked two women Wednesday night in East and West Davis.

Although they happened in two hours apart in separate areas of town, investigators believe the assaults are related because of similar suspect descriptions, Lieutenant Paul Doroshov said.

The first incident occurred at about 6 p.m. on Fifth Street east of Pole Line Road. Doroshov said the female victim was walking on the sidewalk when an unknown male came out of the bushes and grabbed her. She pushed the assailant away and yelled for him to leave her alone.

“The suspect stopped his advance and casually walked away,” doroshov said.

The victim described the suspect as a white male about 35 years old, about 5-foot-11 with a muscular build, blue eyes, a bald head and clean-shaven face. He wore a blue T-shirt shirt and jeans.

Two hours later, a woman was walking on Drake Drive near Sycamore Lane when an unknown suspect jumped out of the bushes and grabbed her leg and buttocks. The woman pushed him away, and the man fled eastbound on Drake Drive.

In that incident, the suspect was described as a white male between 30 and 40 years old, about 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8, 170 pounds, with white thinning or balding hair. The suspect was wearing a blue T-Shirt, blue shorts, white tennis shoes, and white socks.

Anyone with information about either of these incidents is urged to call the Davis Police Department at (530)747-5400.
