SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — San Jose police are searching for a bad-smelling man in connection with a sexual assault that took place on South Bascom Street last week.
The victim, described only as an adult female, was walking on South Bascom around 7 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 26th when she was attacked, according to Officer Jose Garcia.
The suspect was described as a dark complexioned male between 35 and 45 years old, between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 7 inches tall, with broad shoulders, stubble and black salt-and-pepper short hair cut into a flat top.
The suspect may be a transient, “due to his unkempt appearance and body odor,” Garcia said.
The suspect remains at large. Police have released a sketch.
Anyone with information on this case should call police at (408) 277-4102. Anonymous tips can be left by calling (408) 947-STOP or by going to svcrimestoppers.org.
