    [DGO] Woman Sexually Assaulted in Poway: Deputies
    Sgt. Bill Giltner from the San Diego Sheriff's Department gives NBC 7 reporter Chris Chan the latest updates on a woman who was sexually assaulted on April 17.

    The 44-year-old woman told investigators that she was walking when a man grabbed her from behind and began to force her into a nearby drainage ditch.

    Investigators say the woman grabbed onto a chain link fence to try and resist the attacker.

    The man held a knife or razor to her throat and then dragged her into a gulley and sexually assaulted her, the woman told police.

    The woman was finally able to kick the suspect off of her -- and the suspect took off westbound on Vaughn Rd.

    The man is described as being in his 20s with short dark hair and a goatee. He was last seen wearing a dirty white T-shirt and dark sweatpants.

    Deputies searched the area with K9 units and a Sheriff's helicopter searched from the air for the suspect.
