SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The San Bernardino Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who sexually assaulted and stabbed a woman.

The violent attack happened in broad daylight on Saturday, January 12, 2019. Authorities said the suspect and the victim rode the sbX bus to the area of Rialto and “E” street in San Bernardino.

Officials said that once there, the suspect lured the victim to a nearby business and made sexual advances that she resisted.
