SDPD looking for leads in Golden Hill hot prowl attacks

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities warned Golden Hill residents Tuesday about a pair of recent home-invasion assaults on women in the neighborhood.

The first of the two crimes occurred on March 10, when an intruder sneaked into a house in the 2400 block of E Street, grabbed a resident and sexually assaulted her, according to San Diego police.

On April 14, a woman woke up in her home in the 2400 block of Broadway to find a strange man choking her, SDPD sex-crimes Lt. Chuck Kaye said. The victim was able to fight the assailant off, after which he fled, possibly in a light-colored four-door imported car with tinted windows and shiny rims, according to Kaye. A surveillance camera captured images of the vehicle, Kaye said.

Investigators do not know whether the same man committed both crimes.

Anyone with information about the assaults was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
