She had been knocked unconscious and suffered serious injuries. Oceanside Police Detectives later identified the suspect in the attack as Issac Pettigrew.

At around 7:26 a.m. Sunday, Oceanside police received calls from Oceanside Lifeguards regarding a person matching the description of Pettigrew. Officers responded and located Pettigrew in the 200 block of South The Strand.

Officers took him into custody without incident and transported him to the Oceanside Police Department Headquarters.
