SFPD Release Sketch of Suspect Linked to Beatings, Attempted Rape in the Mission

Categories: Crime

This guy
San Francisco Police are looking for a man who looks something like this guy to your right, saying he is responsible for recent assaults and an attempted rape of two women in the city's Mission District .

On Feb. 2 about 1 a.m., a woman was walking on Bartlett Street between 22nd and 23rd streets when the suspect, who was walking toward her coming from the opposite direction, punched her three times.

The woman covered her face with her hands, attempting to protect herself from the suspect. The man ran off and remains at large, police said.

At this point it doesn't appear that the man intended to rob or rape her, police said.

However, the cops believe the suspect could be the same man who attacked a woman last month as she walked along 23rd and Church streets just before 3 a.m. In that incident, the woman was also walking in the opposite direction as the suspect; when the two passed, the man lunged at her, throwing her to the ground.

He straddled the victim while slamming her heard into the ground, according to police.

The woman, screamed for help as she struggled to escape. Neighbors heard the woman and opened a window, shouting to the man to leave the victim alone. The man ran off, and remains at large.

In that incident, the suspect was described as a 25-year-old Asian or Hispanic male. He's about 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds, with a buzz haircut and a slight beard. He was wearing a dark-hooded shirt and dark pants.

Investigators believed the incidents could be connected because the suspect descriptions are similar, as is the mode of attack.

Anyone with any information is urged to contact Inspector Rico Castillo at 734-3004. You can also leave an anonymous tip at 575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411 with SFPD typed in at the beginning of the message.

Be careful out there.

Like John Lilly said " That's what most people in the mission look like..." Mission is like small piece of Latinoamerica. There are people from Nicaragua, Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, etc. If you don't like the culture, the "Hey mami", don't go there. Go to Union Square and buy your Louis Vuitton...and your gun.

And if you're not sure if he's Asian or Hispanic. Then that would mean that Filipino is a big possibility

I use to live off 23rd and Shotwell until 2004. I was constantly harassed by the guys that look like they were in their twenties shouting,"Hey mami"!. And making kissing sounds. Especially when I was wearing my scrubs on the way to my dental assisting job. There needs to be some police officers everyday that walk in the mission and break up the group standing on the corner of boys sexually harassing women. I now live in Florida where I have a concealed weapons permit, and I am allowed to carry all kinds of fun stuff on my person.

That's what most people in the mission look like. Well, except for hipsters.
