PALO ALTO (BCN) — Palo Alto police asked today for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in an assault that occurred in the Baylands Nature Preserve last month.
The incident was reported at 2:51 p.m. on Jan. 21 after a man reportedly exposed his penis to a teenage woman. Her boyfriend attempted to call the police on his cellphone and was repeatedly punched in the face.
The victim attempted to defend himself but briefly lost consciousness during the scuffle. He suffered minor injuries, including bruising to one of his hands, and was transported to a hospital for treatment.
The woman did not participate in the fight and was not injured.
The suspect is described as a man of Hispanic or Pacific Islander descent who is roughly 20 to 25 years old. He is roughly 5 feet 7 inches tall with a heavy build, short black hair and had an unshaven face.
