Up to $1,000 Reward Offered 

San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the San Diego Police Department’s Sex Crimes Unit Division are asking for assistance from the public to help identify and locate an unknown suspect wanted for a sexual assault.   

On March 14, 2018, at about 11:00 p.m., an adult female victim left a business located along University Avenue in the Hillcrest area and approached a vehicle that was waiting in the roadway.  Believing it was the ride that was requested, the victim entered the vehicle and it drove away.  A short time later, the male driver of the vehicle sexually assaulted the victim.  The victim was released and police were called.  Detectives are currently searching for additional witnesses and evidence.  

The victim described the suspect as a Hispanic male, about 40-years-old, having a receding hair line, and a mustache.  The vehicle was described as being a dark colored 4-door sedan.
