Police Search for Possible Westminster Rapist

Police in the Westminster area are following up on a report from a 45-year-old woman who said she was beaten unconscious during an attempted rape.

According to authorities, the alleged incident took place early Wednesday morning on Main Street between Hoover and Olive Streets.

Police, who say the suspect's sketch draws similarities to a sketch of another suspect in two reported assaults on women last summer, report the suspect in this incident kidnapped the woman and threw her into his vehicle. The woman escaped, but was again grabbed and then reportedly attacked in a bushy area.

The attacker is described as a white or Latino man, about 20 to 25 years of age, with a thin build and dark hair.

Anyone with information on these attacks can call Westminster police detectives at (714) 898-3315, ext. 336 or 340.
