The suspect is described as a black man with a medium build and short black hair. He is believed to be from 30 to 50 years old and between 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet tall.
Sacramento police spokesman Officer Doug Morse said there was nothing to indicate that the attacks were racially motivated, but because both victims were older Asian men, the Police Department has put out a notice in Chinese to alert Asian community to the incidents.
