September 2, 2022


The Oakland Police Department (OPD) is requesting the community’s assistance in identifying an individual wanted in connection with attempted rape and robbery.
On August 28, 2022, just after 9:30 AM, Oakland Police Officers responded to a report of the crime in the 2900 block of Parker Avenue.
The victim told officers they were walking in the 2900 block of Parker Avenue when an individual armed with a firearm approached from behind and told the victim to “shut up.”
The individual tackled the victim to the ground and began sexually assaulting them. The victim screamed for help and yelled, “Call the Police!” This caused the individual to run away with the victim’s cell phone.
The armed individual is described as a Black male in his 30’s, 5’10” tall. He was wearing, a blue beanie, a red jacket with Wisconsin on the front, dark pants, and red shoes.
