Woman Sexually Assaulted on Chula Vista Street: Police

Investigators are searching for the man who punched a woman, pulled her to the ground and sexually assaulted her on a Chula Vista street last week.

On Friday just before 4 a.m., the woman was walking northbound on Broadway near J Street when a grey, two-door truck pulled up beside her.

After the driver and the victim talked for a moment, the truck pulled ahead of the woman and parked. According to the victim and a witness, the suspect made sexually explicit comments to the woman as he got out of his vehicle.

He then hit the woman in the face, dragged her down on the sidewalk and held her there as he sexually assaulted her for a few minutes, Chula Vista police say.

The victim called for help to a witness across the street, which spooked the suspect. He got into his truck and drove off northbound on Broadway.

The CVPD is now asking for the public’s help in finding the suspect, who is described as a dark-skinned man in his 20s, standing about 5-feet-7-inches and weighing about 170 pounds. He has short hair and thin sideburns, according to police.

Call the CVPD at 619-691-5151 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477 if you know anything about the suspect.
