Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A knife-wielding man wearing a dress allegedly tried to sexually assault a teenage girl in an El Cerrito neighborhood, a San Diego police officer said Sunday.

The 17-year-old girl was walking in the 6000 block of University Avenue about 9:40 p.m. Saturday when a man in his mid-20's, wearing a dress, walked up

to her, Officer David Stafford said.

"Displaying a knife in a threatening manner, the suspect began grabbing the victim's breasts and tried to pull her into some bushes," Stafford said.

"The victim grabbed the knife to push it away and ran from the suspect," he said. "The victim sustained several cuts to her fingers."

The suspect, whose name was not made public, ran but was arrested nearby and booked on suspicion of sexual battery and assault with a deadly weapon, Stafford said. The victim was taken to a hospital to be treated.
