Latest home invasion assault appears linked

Six Asian women have been targeted in home invasion robberies and sexual assaults in San Diego, police said Thursday.

The assaults began last June, and the most recent occurred around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 6500 block of Reflection Drive in the Mission Valley area and involved a woman and her young child, said San Diego police Capt. Jim Collins.

The woman had just returned home and taken her 18-month-old child inside the family’s apartment before going back to her vehicle for other items when a man grabbed her from behind as she re-entered her home, Collins said.

He demanded cash at knifepoint, then sexually assaulted her before fleeing, according to Collins, who said the child was not hurt.

The suspect is described as being white or Hispanic, around 30 years old and 5 feet 6 inches with a medium build.

In each case, the suspect entered through an open garage or front door, generally while the victim was carrying items into the home. All the victims have been Asian women between the ages of 20 and 48, Collins said.

The first case occurred June 6 in the 6500 block of Montezuma Road, near San Diego State. Other assaults occurred Nov. 7 in the UC San Diego Mesa Housing area in the 9200 block of Regents Road; Jan. 16 at a house in the 5100 block of Camino Playa De Oro in Tierrasanta; Feb. 10 in the 10500 block of Whispering Hills Lane; and March 4 in the 3700 block of Carmel View Road.
