Elk Grove police released a sketch Wednesday of a man sought in an attempted sexual assault this month on a city street.

Police said a 64-year-old woman was walking near Alpinespring Way and Meadowspring Drive about 1:30 p.m. Dec. 8 when she was pushed to the ground from behind by a man who tried to pull off her leggings.
