A second sexual assault was reported in Ocean Beach late Saturday night, the 25th of August. This makes the second such assault within ten days in OB – not a very proud mark for the community. This one was called an “attempted assault” but an attempted assault is still an assault, according to the legal dictionary.
The latest assault occurred on the 5000 block of Muir Avenue at about 2:10 a.m. Saturday night. The victim told police she was walking home alone from an early-morning party. According to the report, the man was somehow spooked during the attempt, and took off. The woman was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Unfortunately, the victim this time was unable to provide a description of the suspect. Detectives from the Sex Crimes Unit responded and are investigating the case. They asked anyone with information to call the Sex Crimes Unit at (619) 531-2210.
A description was given from the first assault on August 15th, on a woman jogging along the San Diego River near Robb Field.
