Sexual Battery suspect sought by police
Submitted By Lt. Matias Pardo, Union City PD
Police in Union City are on the lookout for an unidentified man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman on a walking trail in the early morning hours of Monday, Sept. 4.
At about 6:30 a.m. police said a woman entered the Union City walking trail located near Kohoutek Way and Union City Boulevard. She was soon followed by an unknown man who approached her and said, ÒBe my friend.Ó He then grabbed various areas of the womanÕs body.
Police believe the man was scared off when he heard the voice of a police dispatcher over the womanÕs cell phone. The woman told police that she had seen the man on the same trail on several different occasions, and each time he asked her to be his friend.
The man is described as a Hispanic or Filipino in his late 20s to early 30s, approximately 5-feet-7-inches tall with brown eyes, dark hair, and a dark complexion. The woman told police that each time she has seen the suspect, he was wearing a worn a T-shirt, basketball style shorts and tennis shoes.
Police created a composite sketch of the suspect and are circulating it throughout the region, hoping that someone recognizes the man and notifies police. Anyone who can identify the suspect is asked to email Detective Angela Fonseca at AFonseca@unioncity.org. Anonymous tips can be left on the tip line at (510) 675-5207 or sent via email to email@example.com.
