Philadelphia police are seeking the public’s helping in identifying a suspect in surveillance video who is accused of sexually assaulting a 24-year-old woman in the city’s Frankford section.
According to the police report, the woman alleges that at around 12:30 a.m. on July 12, the suspect approached her from behind and choked her until she became unconscious. She reportedly later awoke naked and in the outdoor rear of a property located in the 3800 block of Jasper Street.
At that time, the woman was able to get help from a nearby neighbor. She reportedly sustained slight head and facial injuries and was transported to Temple Hospital in stable condition.
The police said the suspect approached the woman on a blue and black mountain bike and was wearing a two-tone backpack (as seen in the surveillance video.)
Police described the suspect as a black male, possibly in his 30s, with a full mustache and beard.
At the time, he was wearing a blue or gray-colored jacket, dark-colored shorts, dark-colored socks, dark-colored high-top sneakers with white soles and a baseball cap with a V-shaped logo and a sticker on the top of the bill.
Anyone with information is asked to call 215-686-TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP.
