Sketch artist’s rendering of the suspect. Authorities sought the public’s help Thursday in finding a man who sexually assaulted and slashed a woman in Pico Rivera.

The man attacked the woman the night of Jan. 24 in an alley in the 8400 block of Rosemead Boulevard south of Slauson Avenue, said officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

They said he slashed the woman with a small knife during the sexual assault. He is described as a Latino in his mid-20s, 6 feet tall and about 260 pounds with bushy eyebrows. He was clean-shaven at the time of the attack.

The 8400 block of Rosemead Blvd is not north of Slauson. It is north of Telegraph and south of Slauson.

What I want to know is why didn't the city of Pico Rivera and or Pico Rivera sheriff's dept do a better job of informing the good people of this fine city that is paying a whopping 10.75% in sales tax (One of the highest taxed citys in the state of California).
