A man accused of attacking a woman in a downtown Sacramento park last summer has been convicted of assault and false imprisonment.
A Sacramento County jury on Tuesday found Azeem Hosein, 42, guilty of assault with intent to comment oral copulation and felony false imprisonment while armed with a knife, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release.
On July 30, Hosein attacked and dragged the woman into a stall in the women’s restroom at Roosevelt Park, where he attempted to force her to perform a sex act. A citizen heard the victim’s screams and called police. Officers arrived and were able to apprehend Hosein.
Hosein has a prior conviction for aggravated sexual assault of a child, according the District Attorney’s Office.
