Woman Sexually Assaulted at Knifepoint in Hollywood

Police are looking for a man armed with a knife who sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman as she was walking in Hollywood.

The assault happened around 3 a.m. Tuesday as the woman was walking along the 4900 block of Sheridan Street, Hollywood Police said.

Police said the suspect attacked the woman and forced her into some shrubs, where he sexually assaulted her.

Detectives are also looking for a driver who may have witnessed the attack. He is in his 30s with brown facial hair and was driving a silver 2-door vehicle with dark tinted windows and purple lights.

The incident happened a day after a 60-year-old woman was beaten and sexually battered in Sunrise. Hollywood Police said they’ve been in contact with Sunrise Police but said it’s too early to determine if the two incidents are connected.

In Sunrise Wednesday, detectives were canvassing the area handing out flyers with a sketch of the suspect.

“He approached her from behind, grabbed her in a chokehold and pulled her into the nearby bushes where he struck her several times in the face with a closed fist,” Sunrise Police spokesperson Chris Piper said. “During that time he then sexually battered the victim while she struggled to get away.”
