During the early morning hours, a woman in her 20s awoke to find a male stranger in her bedroom. The man was holding a sharp object and threatened to harm her if she screamed.

The man sexually assaulted the woman before fleeing her residence. Following the assault, the victim called 9-1-1.

Officers searched the area, but were unable to find the suspect. Investigators then collected evidence from the scene which will be processed in the future.

Officers believe the suspect likely made entry into the residence through an unlocked door.

The suspect is described as an Hispanic male in his late 30’s, about 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds.

The San Luis Obispo Police Department wants to remind the community to secure all
windows and doors to their residence and vehicles. The department is also asking anyone with information related to this crime to call Detective Amy Chastain at (805) 594-8023.


It’s really hot out. I don’t have air conditioning. My windows will be open all night and I will enjoy the cooling breeze as I sleep. That said I would strongly advise you not to take advantage of any perceived opportunity. The police would have me sweat and cower behind a locked fortress. Homie don’t play that.


Left out: “We asked San Luis Obispo Police Chief or Sgt (blank) where this assault took place and they refused to tell us.”


The privacy rights of the alleged assailant must be protected, so no, you cannot know where the alleged crime may or may not have occurred..
