Police are asking for the public's help in tracking down a man who they say sexually assaulted and robbed a woman in Huntington Beach earlier this month.
On Oct. 3 about 1 a.m., the man approached the woman as she was returning to her home near Bolsa Chica Road and Warner Avenue. Police said he held a gun to her after grabbing her from behind, covering her mouth and warning her not to scream.
The woman resisted and they both fell to the ground. That's when police said the man sexually assaulted her and took off with some of her property.
The assailant was described as a Hispanic man in his early to mid 20s, 5-foot-7, with a medium build. He was wearing a black T-shirt with white and blue designs and blue jeans.
Anyone with information was asked to call the Huntington Beach Police Department at 714-375-5066.
