in Ocean Beach

Sunday morning during the King tide, a half dozen San Diego Police officers were seen milling about the parking lot behind Bravos on Bacon Street. They were part of an investigation and search for a man wanted in an early Sunday morning sexual assault in Ocean Beach.

A little after 2 am a woman was walking on the sidewalk in the 1800 block of Bacon Street near Narragansett Avenue when a man emerged from an alley, grabbed the victim by the arm and pulled her about 30 feet into the alley.

The woman was hit in the face and thrown to the ground; then she was sexually assaulted. The suspect ran away from the scene.

The sexual assailant is described as white, 25 to 35 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches and very thin, with short or balding hair and a well-trimmed red beard.

He was last seen wearing a dark sweatshirt and blue jeans.

Kristi Hedin lives in the neighborhood and was shocked to hear the news. “That is extraordinarily frightening,” Hedin said. “I have girlfriends that live in this area and we think it’s a safe area, but hearing that news is scary.”

Anyone with any information on the identity or whereabouts of the suspect was urged to call the SDSD Sex Crimes Unit at (619) 531-2210 or Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477

Its too bad there isn’t video surveillance all over this area. At least they would have a photo of the assailant.

Lorie Zapf had surveillance cameras pointed in the wrong directions. Heck of a thing.
