Police are searching for a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman near the BART 16th Street Mission station in San Francisco on Friday morning.
Officers responded to the 2000 block of Mission Street after police dispatch received a 911 report of a rape at about 9 a.m., police Officer Albie Esparza said.
Shortly afterward, an officer thought he saw the suspect head into the 16th Street Mission station. Officials closed the station at about 9:15 a.m., and trains were unable to stop there while the officer searched for the suspect, Esparza said.
The suspect wasn’t found and trains resumed service at the station at about 9:35 a.m.
The suspect is described as a bald man, 6 feet, 1 inch tall and 275 pounds, wearing a black leather jacket, blue shirt, and white baseball hat.
No delays to BART service were reported.
