A 14-year-old boy is wanted for two separate incidents of robbery and sexual assault in West Oakland, one on January 6 and one last Thursday. The first incident occurred in the 1200 block of Market Street in Oakland, and the boy is said to have approached a 28-year-old woman, pretended to have a gun, demanded her wallet, and then forced her to an isolated area where he sexually assaulted her.
The second incident happened less than a mile away on January 12, in the 600 block of 11th Street. The suspect approached another 28-year-old victim on his bicycle, demanded her purse, and assaulted her.
Though they did not initially release his identity, because he's a juvenile, police have just revealed that his name is Brionn Glasper. OPD spokesperson Johnna Watson explains, "We’re dealing with a juvenile so the law does not allow us to release his photo to the media and to make the public aware of this particular threat to the community. But the law does allow us to release his name and a physical description.”
He's described as African-American, 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing 110 pounds. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Oakland Youth and Family Services Division at 510-238-3641.
