For Immediate Release:
The Sutter County Sheriff’s Department is investigating an attempted sexual assault that occurred on Saturday (12-11-04) evening. The incident occurred at approximately 6:30 PM, in the area of the bicycle path that crosses the Gilsizer Slough between South Barrett Road and Glenwood Drive, in South Yuba City.
The young adult female victim who is a Yuba City resident was searching for her dog in the above listed area when she was grabbed from behind by a white male assailant, described as being in his 20’s, approximately 5’-10”, medium build, dark medium length hair, and described as being clean shaven.
