After two women were attacked in separate sexual assaults on Sunday, April 24, the San Francisco Police Department has released photos of the suspects in the hope that members of the public will recognize the men and come forward.
The first assault took place around 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning, police say, in a Financial District hotel. According to police, the 23-year-old victim was in the area when she met a man who said his name was "Sergio." After the two "walked around the area" for a bit they eventually entered a nearby hotel.
It was inside that hotel, the name of which SFPD has declined to disclose, that police say that "Sergio" sexually assaulted the woman. She fled the hotel and contacted police, who searched surveillance video in the area and found the photo of "Sergio" you see on the above left.
Police say they believe "Sergio" might also be responsible for another sexual assault "that occurred on 3/26/16 in the same area." As of publication time, they did not provide any additional details on that attack.
"Sergio" is described as "having a medium complexion," police say. He's 25-30 years old and stands about 5'8'.
Then, between 1:50 and 2:20 p.m. Sunday, police say the man you see on the upper right entered the apartment of a 74-year-old woman who lives on the 800 block of Pacific Avenue, which is between Stockton and Powell Streets in Chinatown.
According to the SFPD, this man sexually assaulted the elderly woman, then fled. Police say that area surveillance video caught the suspect on tape, and are hopeful that a member of the public might recognize him and come forward.
