From RPD:

Richmond Police detectives are asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect in the photo who is a suspect in an assault that occurred early this month in Monroe Ward.

At around 5:45 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 4., police were dispatched to the intersection of North 1st and Grace Streets after receiving a report of a woman screaming for help. Officers located the victim at North 3rd and Broad Streets and she was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers were told the victim was walking in the area when she was approached by an unknown male who began to make sexual comments to her. He then began to assault the victim, striking her several times with a wooden block then sexually assaulting her.

The suspect has been seen in the area in the past.

He is described as a black male with a dark beard. At the time he was wearing a light-colored knit cap; medium-colored jacket with dark-colored sleeves, a white label on the right chest, and a white design on the back; light-colored pants; and dark-colored shoes.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Major Crimes Detective J. Larry at (804) 646-5896 or contact Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or at www.7801000.com.
