Livermore police investigating 2 sexual assault incidents

Teenager assaulted Sunday night, mother attacked in her Colusa Way home

Livermore police today are seeking a man who grabbed and sexually battered a 16 year old girl last Sunday and also a man suspected of assaulting his girlfriend on Tuesday.

The 16-year-old was grabbed from behind while she was walking on Murrieta Boulevard and El Rancho Drive around 9:15 p.m. Sunday when she was attacked, police said. She was able to escape and call police.

The suspect is described as an unshaven Hispanic male adult between 20 and 30 years of age around 6 feet tall with a medium build and short dark hair. He was wearing a black shirt and dark jeans.

Police are investigating, and trying to determine if the attack is connected to other recent incidents in which lone females were assaulted.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Glen Robbins at (925) 371-4760.

Police investigators also are trying to locate a man suspected of assaulting and threatening his girlfriend in Livermore Tuesday afternoon.

The victim called police around 2:25 p.m. saying that the suspect had held her captive for several hours in her own residence in the 500 block

of Colusa Way, according to police.

Responding officers contacted the woman, who said the suspect had assaulted her and that she was unsure if he was still in the residence. She told officers that the suspect owns several firearms

and made threats to kill himself and kidnap her child.

Officers made several attempts to contact the suspect inside the residence and eventually entered with a K-9 unit to find that the suspect was not inside. Police are still investigating what happened at the scene and are trying to find the suspect.

Police do not believe that anyone in the community is in danger from the suspect.

More information on him is not immediately being released because of the ongoing investigation, but police said the man and woman are known to Livermore police because of a history of related calls to the residence.
