The Davis Police Department has released a sketch of a suspect sought in connection with an Oct. 28 attempted sexual assault.

The incident occurred about 10:30 p.m. in the 600 block of Alvarado Avenue near Anderson Road. A woman was returning to her residence and had parked her car in the parking lot. After retrieving her belongings from the car, she was confronted by a man who forced her back toward her vehicle. Once at the vehicle, he attempted to sexually assault her in the parking lot, according to a Police Department news release.
