    San Diego police are investigating the report of a sexual assault on a teenage girl in City Heights.

    The 14-year-old girl told police she was walking on Fairmount Avenue around 3 p.m. Thursday when a man pushed her into a car. The teen said the man took her to a park in City Heights where she was allegedly sexually assaulted.

    Officers said there is not a clear timeline as to where the teen has been from the time of the assault until she called them at 2 a.m. Friday.

    The girl was taken to the hospital for treatment.

    Investigators have been working to corroborate the victim's allegations. At 4:10 p.m., the SDPD confirmed that the incident did involve a sexual asssault, but not a kidnapping as the victim initially reported.

    Detectives are still working on identifying the location of the assault and the possible suspect. The victim had been introduced to the suspect prior to the assault, police said.

    For now, he is only described as a 20 to 25-year-old man with a normal to stocky build.

    Anybody with information on this case should call Crime Stoppers at (888)580-8477 or the San Diego Police Department Sex Crimes Unit at (619) 531-2210.
