An unknown male struck the victim from behind while the victim was walking on a trail near the Schnell School Road overcrossing, said Lt. Kim Nida of the Placerville Police Department.
The suspect was described as a white male adult between 25 and 30 years old. He was wearing a baseball cap of unknown color with “FBC” across the front, a green jacket and carrying a black backpack.
This is the first incident reported to PPD regarding the walking trail, and Nida noted that “when walking the trail always use caution and be alert. It’s always a good idea to walk during day light hours and with a partner.”
Anyone with information about the assault is asked to call PPD dispatch at 530-642-5280.
