San Francisco police Thursday released a description and photo of a man described as a person of interest in the sexual assault and robbery of two people along the Mission District’s 24th Street corridor.
The description of the suspect in a November attack on 24th Street resembled one that happened Thursday morning at 24th and Fair Oaks streets, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
Both victims were walking in the early morning hours between 3 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., and were attacked from behind, cops said.
During a struggle, the victims were assaulted and then robbed, police said. The suspect then fled on foot.
The suspect was described as a black man in his mid-30s, between 5-foot-9 and 6 feet tall, with a medium build and wearing a black hoodie and dark pants.
A photo taken from surveillance video shows the suspect and can be viewed here.
