Man Wanted For Sexually Assaulting Woman Near Azusa Pacific University

AZUSA ( – A search is underway for a man who sexually assaulted and tried to kidnap a woman near Azusa Pacific University.

The victim was walking to her apartment about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 1100 block of East Alosta Avenue when she was attacked, according Azusa police said.

“As she entered the carport area of the apartment complex, a male suspect approached her from behind and grabbed her,” according to a police statement. “The suspect was able to lift her off the ground, and made an attempt to carry her away. As the victim struggled, the suspect released her, and ran from the scene. The victim was sexually assaulted during this crime.”

The man was described as Hispanic, 5 feet 5 inches tall, and in his late teens to early 20’s. He wore dark clothing and a baseball-style hat.

Detectives have some safety tips.

Police said they do not believe the crime was connected with a similar abduction attempt near the Cal State Northridge campus on Tuesday afternoon.

Anyone with information on the Azusa crime was urged to call Detective S. Spahr at (626) 812-3200.
