Police Urge Women to Be Extra Aware in Midtown Area

Police Urge Women to Be Extra Aware in Midtown Area

Sacramento Police are urging some extra awareness in Midtown after a number of assaults on women in the area. 

Officers say they're on the lookout for a bicyclist who groped two pedestrians along U and 11th Streets and H and 57th last week,  he was apparently wearing a dark sweatshirt and was on a green or teal bike.

Spokeswoman Michele Gigante says its something they don't ususally see, which was the theme with another attack early Sunday, when a woman confronted a purse snatcher near G and 26th streets. 

"She fought back, and it was the suspect who actually pulled out pepper spray and sprayed the victim," Gigante said. 

She's OK and officers are looking for surveillance footage.

They're urging walkers to keep their heads on a swivel and call in anything out of the ordinary.
