Three women sexually assaulted in SLO
February 5, 2013
Sexual assaults of three college age women occurred late Saturday night and early Sunday morning on Foothill Boulevard in San Luis Obispo.
Around 11 p.m. Saturday, a male suspect approached two women near the corner of Foothill and California boulevards, stepped in between them and tried to rip off their underwear, according to the San Luis Obispo Police Department. The suspect, described as a six-foot tall, 180 pound 19 to 20-year-old, first grabbed the women’s pants in the buttocks area before unsuccessfully attempting to remove their underwear.
The second assault occurred around 4:15 a.m. Sunday in the 700 block of Foothill. A male suspect, also described as 19 to 20-years-old, approached a woman waiting for a taxi, pulled her near some bushes and forced his hands down the front and back of her pants. The suspect, who had a slender build and was wearing a hoodie and baggy jeans, fled when the taxi arrived.
None of the victims sustained physical injuries, but all appeared traumatized.
In March and April of 2012, a suspect with a similar physical appearance sexually assaulted women in a comparable manner near and on the Cal Poly campus. San Luis Obispo police have yet to find the suspect in the 2012 assaults.
