Woman Sexually Assaulted While Walking to Work in Victorville

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) Police are searching for a man who sexually assaulted a woman as she was walking to work early Monday morning.

The assault occurred at around 3:00 am, on Monday, July 3, 2017, in the 15000 block of Hook Blvd. in Victorville.

As the woman in her early 30’s walked near the Stater Brothers an unidentified man riding a bike approached her.

“The guy on the bike rode past me and shouted out ‘Hey baby’,” said the victim. “He then turned around and asked me if I had a cigarette, and I said no I’m sorry.”

The victim said at that point the male jumped off his bike and put her in a chokehold.

“He grabbed my breast, groped me, and as he was still holding on to me we fell to the dirt,” said the victim.

“He was still on me touching me and I was fighting him off. He hit me in the face, and I hit him back,” stated the victim.

The assailant also attempted to steal the woman’s purse but she fought back and he eventually fled.

“I’m so thankful I was able to fight back, I can’t help but think about people who don’t. God was with me,” said the victim.

The suspect is described as a thin White male adult, last seen wearing black pants, white t-shirt, and a hat. The victim described the bike as a low rider type bike with a light on it.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Victorville Police Department at(760) 956-5001 and reference case # 17107968.

Editor’s Note: Correction – The article initially indicated the woman was walking home from work. We’ve recently learned she was actually walking to work when the sexual assault occurred.
