Police seek attempted rapist in Thousand Oaks

Police are seeking a man who attempted to rape a jogger in Thousand Oaks.

A woman was running on the night of Nov. 6 near Northwood Place and Maybury Court when a man pushed her into some bushes, said Capt. Frank O’Hanlon of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Dept. The woman, who believed she was about to be sexually assaulted, kicked the man and fled.

The suspect is described as a white male between 30 and 35 years old, 6-feet-2, about 180 pounds, with short dark hair and a slender build. He was wearing a hoodie and sunglasses at the time of the attack.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Javier Chavez at (805) 494-8229.
