    Berkeley Police Search for Man Suspected of Recent Rash of Sexual Assaults
    Berkeley Police Department
    Berkeley olice believe the man pictured here is their suspect. He was caught on a surveillance camera in February when three women were attacked in the same area.

    Police say a fourth woman was sexually assaulted near the University of California, Berkeley campus, and investigators are searching for a man suspected in all the attacks.

    The Berkeley Police Department says a 21-year-old woman was walking in the street Saturday when the suspect grabbed her from behind, pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

    The woman described the suspect as a male in his early 20s, unshaven and wearing a dark hooded dark sweatshirt.

    The first reported assault occurred Feb. 11 near a popular park on the south side of campus. The victim was walking by the park when she was grabbed from behind and pushed down to the sidewalk.

    Five days later, police, who believe the suspect was caught on a surveillance camera last month, received reports of two more assaults.
