Woman Sexually Assaulted After Leaving Bar; Attack Mirrors July Incident

The unidentified woman was attacked while walking home from Ye Olde Plank Inn, a Sheriff's Department official said.

An unidentified woman was sexually assaulted Sunday morning while walking home from the bar Ye Olde Plank Inn, said Sgt. William Uelen of the .

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 858-565-5200. You can also call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.

Maybe Palm could use some lighting.

Also it would be good if she had a gun. She can set this guy on his way to see his maker.

you're wasting the taxpayer money ripping out perfectly good sidewalks on palm right now....but yea, why don't you plan to spend a few million ripping apart palm ave again to install lights .... ...you can start ripping out the sidewalks for the 3rd time in a decade right after the concrete dries on this current waste of taxpayer money....

One problem Mark, California is about the hardest state in these United States to get a concealed carry permit, and San Doiego is the hardest county which without if caught carrying you will go directly to jail till they (The Sheriff's) get it sorted out. LOL, I agree with you in principal but the powers in sacramento don't, Damn Shame !

Pimental has it right. They have about 20 cameras at the Plank covering every inch inside, patio, and parking lot. If this is legit the victim should have no problem ID'ing the perp from the security video. Or.......?

How much money does it worth to prevent someone from raping you libi?
Libi Uremovic February 19, 2013 at 01:33 PM
we're $16 trillion in debt right now and we still have rapes sandra, so maybe government debt doesn't prevent rapes as effectively as you've been told... we can run out debt up to $50 trillion... and rip out all the sidewalks all over town again... but it's not going to lower the crime rate...

Instead of lights rip out the sidewalks to put to awful fake surfboards right? I would feel a little more safe if there were more lights on palm, i dont think its too much to ask for
Libi Uremovic February 20, 2013 at 11:47 PM
it's not too much to ask that your tax dollars are spent for the basic needs of the community instead of wasted ... street lights have been around for 100 years...ib and the maybe one remote village in africa has government officials so corrupt they buy statues instead of street lights...

It's a legit sexual assault. What photos can you look through Pimental
Paula Winchester February 21, 2013 at 09:50 PM
I'm with you Mark, but Ed is right, at least partly. San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco rule the state and it is very difficult and almost impossible to get a CCW. However in the less populated counties that actually have more square miles you have a much better chance. San Bernadino and Kern being two of these. People who are farther away from a 911 call bringing help actually understand that the police usually just get there just in time to write up the report and not to save you. That being said, I imagine that when his woman went to the Plank she was probably having cocktails, (nothing wrong with that!) but when you have a CCW you are prohibited from drinking while concealing. So if she did have a gun and did take the guy out, in today's crazy world she would probably end up in jail. Plus his family would probably sue her for killing their poor mentally disturbed brother who was just trying to be friendly. I hope the police pursue the camera angle at the Plank. Another weapon idea would be a civilian version of the taser. You can conceal that and give the bad guy a ride he will never forget.

A Pedophile is someone who targets children. I don't think this lady fits into that category. But whoever did it to her is a pervert, just not a pedophile. Hope they catch him.
