San Jose police release further description of sexual assault suspect

San Jose police today released additional surveillance photos and an updated description of a suspect in two attempted sexual assaults on Tuesday and last month.

Around 4 p.m. Tuesday, the suspect followed a 13-year-old girl who was walking from her middle school in the area of Stevens Creek Boulevard and Albany Drive, police said.

He continued to follow her to the front door of her home in the 4000 block of Rio Vista Avenue, police said.

The suspect forced himself inside the home, but the victim was able to fight him off, according to police.

He fled the residence and was last seen heading east, police said. The suspect is described as a white man between the ages of 25 and 30, weighing 155 pounds with a medium height, thin build, beard, tan complexion and dark shaggy hair, police said.

At the time of the incident, he was wearing a light blue button-up dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up, light-colored khaki cargo shorts, dark blue leather shoes, black socks, a black messenger bag and dark blue beanie, according to police.

He may have been riding a light-blue 10-speed bicycle as well. He also had a smartphone and was seen with white earbuds in his ears, police said.

The suspect had a “weird” alcohol or cologne scent, according to police.

He is believed to be the same person who attempted to sexually assault a 28-year-old woman at Mitsuwa Marketplace, a Japanese grocery store at 675 Saratoga Ave., on April 2, police said.

Shortly before 1 p.m. that day, the suspect followed the woman into a public restroom and fled before police arrived.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect is asked to contact San Jose police Detective Brandon Scholten by calling (408) 277-4102 or sending an email to
