Police need your help this morning to catch a sexual predator before he terrorizes another woman. Bob DeCastro joins us in Colton...where police have just released several sketches of the suspect.
On February 27th 2013 at approximately 9:35 PM the Colton Police Department received a call of a sexual assault that had just occurred in the 700 block of East "M" street. The victim reported to officers that she was assaulted by a Hispanic male adult who she had just met earlier while waiting at a bus stop in Colton.
The suspect followed the victim as she walked to a friend's house and assaulted her behind some shrubs out of sight from passing motorists. The victim had never met the suspect until the night of the attack, and she further described him as being 5'-7" to 5'-10" having a thin build with acne scars on both of his cheeks. The suspect also has two scars on his abdomen, and was last seen wearing a gray zip-up sweatshirt with hood and gray sweatpants with dark boots.
The suspect may use the name of "Tony", and possibly lives in the city of Colton. If anyone has any information regarding this assault they are encouraged to call the Colton Police Department at (909) 370-5110 and ask for Detective Ray Mendez.
