Police looking for suspect who sexually assaulted Riverside woman while she slept

Authorities are asking for the public's help locating a man they say sexually assaulted a woman in Riverside as she slept with her husband next to her.

The incident occurred at about 2:40 a.m. on Dec. 11 in the 5800 block of Fair Isle Drive in the Sycamore Canyon neighborhood.

Riverside police say the suspect entered the apartment and committed a sexual assault on the female victim. This woke up the victim who then alerted her husband causing the suspect to run away, police said.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult, about 35 to 40 years old, approximately 5-feet 4-inches tall and between 180 to 200 pounds, dark skin, and short hair. He was last seen wearing dark clothing. The victim collaborated with a sketch artist to develop a rendering of the suspect.
