On Wednesday, July 9, 2008 at approximately 5:00 p.m., the victim was at her residence in the 100 block of North Extension when she heard a knock at the front door. The victim opened the door and saw a male standing at the door. The male then forced his way into the residence, pushed the victim down to the couch and sexually assaulted her. A short time later, the male left the residence.

 The victim did not report the incident to anyone until yesterday, July 23, in fear the male suspect would return. When the victim told her family members about the incident, the police department was immediately notified and an active investigation is currently ongoing.

The following description of the male suspect has been provided to police: A Hispanic male appearing to be in his 30's, 5'6" to 5'8" tall, thin build, thin moustache, brown eyes, short "messy style" black hair. He was wearing a tan colored T-shirt, black jeans and work-style boots. Additionally, the male was wearing a small gold hoop earring in the ear and has two small moles below the right side of his eye. 

Anyone with information is urged to call Mesa Police at 480-644-2211 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480-948-6377).
