On July 25, 2018, at about 8:00 a.m., officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to a residence on the 3300 block of Summer Street for the report of a burglary and attempted sexual assault that had just occurred.
The victim said an unknown male made entry into her home and attempted to assault her in her bedroom. The suspect fled out a rear door when the victim threatened to grab a weapon. The suspect was described as a white male, 30’s, 5’10”, thin build, blond hair, and was wearing a red sweatshirt with white writing and brown cargo style pants.
Detectives are asking that anyone with surveillance cameras in between the area of Highland and Buhne and Fairfield and A Streets check for a subject matching the suspect description between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. It is unknown if the suspect left the area on foot or in vehicle. Anyone with surveillance or information is asked to email Detective Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org
At this time, it appears this incident occurred at random. The suspect has not been identified and the investigation is ongoing. Residents are encouraged to be diligent in locking all doors and windows at all times. Be aware of suspicious activity and report it to your local police department.
