Davis police seek to find a man who reportedly assaulted a woman in a local park this afternoon.

The woman was walking in Barovetto Park, near the intersection of Arroyo Avenue and Alhambra Drive, at 1:48 p.m. when she was grabbed from behind by a man who pulled up her dress and attempted to sexually assault her, according to a Police Department news release. The woman was able to break free and run to a nearby residence for help.

Police said the woman was not injured and last saw the suspect near a bus stop at Alhambra Drive.

The suspect is described as white, about 30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, with a medium build and no facial hair. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored baseball hat, red T-shirt, khaki shorts and dark brown UGG-style slippers or boating shoes.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Davis Police Department at (530) 747-5400.
