San Francisco police seek attempted-rape suspect after woman fights off attacker 

Less than a month after a serial rapist in the Mission district was sentenced to multiple life terms in prison, a report of another vicious attack in the neighborhood emerged this week.

About 2:40 a.m. Saturday, a woman reportedly thwarted a violent fiend on 23rd Street between Guerrero Street and San Jose Avenue. The victim later described the terrifying encounter in a Facebook post.

Police Department spokesman Officer Albie Esparza confirmed the incident Wednesday.

The woman said she was walking home from a friend’s potluck when she passed the creep. He reportedly lunged at her, straddled her and then assaulted her. She said she believed he was trying to knock her unconscious, but that he did not realize she is a strong climber. With a surge of strength “and some biting,” the woman said, she broke free enough to scream for help. A neighbor heard her and scared off the attacker.

The suspect is described as an Asian man in his 20s or 30s, about 5-foot-8 and weighing 160 pounds. He had a thin beard and was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and pants.

In December, 33-year-old Frederick Dozier was sentenced to 373 years in prison for the brutal rapes of three women.
