Police investigate girl's sexual assault report in City Heights

Detectives determined girl was not kidnapped

SAN DIEGO - Detectives are investigating a 14-year-old girl's claim that she was sexually assaulted Thursday in City Heights.

San Diego police initially reported that the teen told officers she was walking in the City Heights area at about 3 p.m. Thursday when a man pulled up in a car and forced her inside. She told police she was taken to a City Heights park, where the man sexually assaulted her.

She said she somehow ended up at the intersection of Fairmont and University avenues at 2:15 a.m. Friday, where she flagged down officers. She was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

Late Friday afternoon, police said detectives from the SDPD Sex Crimes Unit determined that a sexual assault did occur, but it did not involve a kidnapping. Details on how detectives reached that decision were not disclosed.

Police said detectives are continuing to search for the suspected attacker, who was described as a Hispanic male, 20-25 years old with a normal to stocky build.

Anyone with information on the case should call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477 or the San Diego Police Department Sex Crimes Unit at 619-531-2210.
