PLEASANT HILL (CBS SF) – The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating what apparently was an incident of sexual battery on a 25-year-old woman Wednesday afternoon in unincorporated Walnut Creek near the Pleasant Hill BART station, sheriff’s officials said.

The woman was walking on Oak Road, just north of Treat Boulevard, around 3:15 p.m. when she said she felt someone grab her, officials said.

The woman turned around and saw that it was a man that had been following her. The suspect released his grasp of the woman and then fled, according to officials.

Sheriff’s officials and other law enforcement agencies searched for the suspect but did not find him, according to the sheriff’s office.

The suspect is described as a white man, about 35 years old, standing 5 feet 10 inches, about 200 pounds and unshaven. He was seen wearing black slacks and a black dress shirt with a red tie.

Anyone with information about the suspect or case is encouraged to call the sheriff’s office at (925) 646-2441.

    It’s reassuring that this crime is being taken seriously. Not too long ago, it was customary for women to be told, “Relax. Forget about it. Be glad you weren’t hurt.” A person who is touched inappropriately and scared out of her wits IS hurt, and a person who commits these assaults is dangerous.

      just relax….

    How sad. I remember when that was a nice area too… :/ Well, except for “The Keys” condo complex.. auto theft capital of Walnut Creek for ages now.

    Sure seems to be a huge horde of anti-social riff-raff filling the once safe and sane environs of Concord, P. Hill, Walnut Creek etc.

    Though hard to prove it appears to me that the trend towards the wonders of “diversity is our strength” and of “multi-culturalism MUST be embraced” while any demand that ties-that-bind be promulgated and declared by the PC mob as a horror has led to at least some anti-social activity.

    The ongoing class war of the of the past 40 years also harms We, the People in many ways.

    “There’s class warfare, all right, Mr. (Warren) Buffett said, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”

    “There has been class warfare going on,” Buffett, 81, said in a Sept. 30 interview with Charlie Rose on PBS. It’s just that my class is winning. And my class isn’t just winning, I mean we’re killing them.”

    Article quote: The suspect is described as a white man, about 35 years old, standing 5 feet 10 inches, about 200 pounds and unshaven. He was seen wearing black slacks and a black dress shirt with a red tie.

    VERY interesting – that description fits the doormen/bouncers at the FUSION LOUNGE in San Francisco, which is one block away from the Powell Street BART station. The clothing – black slacks, black dress shirt & red tie – is the EXACT outfit worn by these burly guys!

    Victim says she was followed. Makes me wonder if the guy followed her from a BART train. Hmm….

    FOLLOWUP Apparently, the Contra Costa Sheriff’s Dept. isn’t taking this incident TOO seriously. A caller with info was told to leave contact info (done), and the staff member just left the same phone # as in the article but no name to ask for. Then the caller was told to “Call BART police” about it!!!

    Contacting CC Sheriff Dept is useless – beyond LAME!!!
