New information released on assault in Ardenwood
Submitted By Fremont PD
Police investigation has led to the belief that an attack at 6:58 p.m. on April 4, 2013 in a home on the 34000 block of Spezia Terrace in the Ardenwood area was more than just an assault. It is believed the suspect entered the residence specifically with the intent to commit a sexual assault.
It is unknown if the suspect followed the victim into the home or was already waiting inside. When he grabbed her from behind, she could see that the suspect's face was covered by a mask. This investigation is ongoing and while many aspects of the case continue to remain confidential, it continues to be considered an extremely serious crime. Fremont PD asks the community to continue to remain alert and vigilant. Call the department if you observe any activity that appears suspicious.
The suspect in this case is described as a male in his 30's, medium complexion, medium height (approx. 5'8") and approx. 165 lbs., black hair (bowl cut) and wearing a dark grey hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, black gloves and a mask.
No additional similar reports have been made to the Fremont Police. Detectives are actively working this case and resources are being allocated in every attempt to locate this unknown suspect.
