Sacramento police have released artist depictions of tattoos on the arms of a man who sexually assaulted a woman late one night in March.

The woman was walking along Bicentennial Circle near Howe Avenue toward Folsom Boulevard on March 29 when she was approached by a stranger. The man grabbed her and forced her just off the roadway where she was sexually attacked.

The suspect was described as white man in his 20s with “stylishly messy” dark hair. On his forearms were geometric designs and the depiction of a large candle.

Detectives hope that someone will recognize the tattoos and come forward with information to catch the criminal. Anyone with information may contact police at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-4357. Callers to Crime Alert may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.
