Carrboro Police Investigate Attempted Sexual Assault

Posted June 26, 2004

— Carrboro police are looking for a man who tried to sexually assault a woman in her own home.

Investigators said the suspect was wearing running clothes and an Ace bandage on his knee.

The victim told police she was asleep in her home on North Greensboro Street when the man came in about 5 a.m. Saturday and started to asssault her. She said she woke up and began yelling at him, at which point he fled the residence.

The suspect was described as a noticeably dark-skinned Latino male, possibly in his late teens to mid 20's, 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a slender, lean build and thick short dark hair that unevenly covered his forehead. He had no facial hair and spoke English in a soft, quiet voice with no discernible accent.

Carrboro police still are investigating two reported rapes and a sexual assault in women's homes in February. In two of the cases, the suspect was described as Hispanic.

Police do not know if all four cases are related. But they said there was a possibility the first three were.
