San Jose police are trying to track down a man who tried to sexually assault a woman in a grocery store restroom last month and this week forced his way into the home of a 13-year-old girl as she arrived home from school.
On Tuesday, the man followed the 13-year-old girl as she walked home from school. Police responded to the girl’s home in the 4000 block of Rio Vista Avenue and she told investigators he had forced his way through the front door of her home as she went inside. She fought him off and he fled before police arrived.
The girl then locked the door after he left, hid in a closet and texted her father: “DADDY COME HOME NOW. SOME GUY TRIED TO RAPE ME.”
