Updated March 28, 4:45 p.m.–
Citrus Heights police released a sketch Monday afternoon of a man they said has been “peering into apartments” and is accused of sexually assaulting a female victim.

In a news release issued around 4 p.m. Monday, police said officers have responded to multiple reports from female residents about a “suspicious subject” in their apartment complexes, beginning in January of this year. The suspect reportedly has approached women or girls as they were leaving or coming to their apartments, and “on one occasion, a female was sexually assaulted.”

The man is described as dark skinned, clean shaven, and approximately 25 to 30 years old, according to police. He is approximately 5-foot-11-inches to 6-foot-2-inches in height and has typically been seen with a hooded sweatshirt on.

Police said those with information about the suspect are asked to call Det. Deborah Bayer at (916) 727-5584.
