Santa Clara police were on the scene of a reported sexual assault early Friday morning at an apartment complex on Homestead Road  near Central Park.

The assault occurred in the 2800-block of Homestead at about 4 a.m., police said.

Police say a woman in her 20s reports she woke to find a male stranger standing over her with a box cutter held to her throat. Neighbors think the suspect got in the home through a window.

It is unclear whether the woman was hurt. She was taken to the hospital.

Santa Clara police are on the lookout for the suspect.  Friday afternoon, they released a description:

  • Adult male
  • 5’2” to 5’4” with a thin build
  • Possible facial hair

  • He was wearing all dark clothing, including:
    • A dark beanie style hat
    • Dark hooded sweatshirt
    • Dark tank top
    • Dark basketball style shoes
