Woman Sexually Assaulted After Leaving Bar; Attack Mirrors July Incident

Published Feb. 18, 2013 by Imperial Beach Patch.

An unidentified woman was sexually assaulted Sunday morning while walking home from the bar Ye Olde Plank Inn, said Sgt. William Uelen of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Imperial Beach substation.

Around 1:50 a.m. the woman was approached by a man near the corner of 5th Street and Palm Avenue, dragged into bushes and sexually assaulted, Uelen said.

No weapon was used during the assault, he said.

The woman believes she was attacked by someone she saw at the bar earlier in the evening, Uelen said.

The suspect is a black male wearing a dark colored shirt and light jeans, he said.

Last July a woman was sexually assaulted in about the same location around the same time by a suspect fitting a similar description, but the two incidents are not thought to be related at this time, Uelen said.

If you have any information about the crime, please call the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department at 858­565­5200. You can also call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888­ 580­8477.
