Juvenile Jogger Assaulted in Marinwood - Seeking Public Assistance

Please help us identify the person depicted in the attached sketch

On February 1st, 2021 around 6pm, a 15 year old female juvenile reported she was jogging in a neighborhood near Mt. Rainier Drive in the Marinwood neighborhood of San Rafael. She reported while she was jogging on a wooded foot path, a suspect came out from behind foliage in front of her and grabbed her face. The victim punched the suspect in the face and ran away; he chased her but did not catch up to her.

The suspect is described a black male adult, 50-60 years old, 6 ft tall, medium build, with brown eyes and a black beard a couple inches in length. He was wearing a black beanie, a red fleece collared sweater, blue jogging pants, and white Adidas shoes with black stripes. 

The attached picture is a composite sketch of the suspect. We have utilized plain clothes Detectives to canvas the area, marked patrol vehicles are providing extra patrol and our Detectives are continuing their investigation. We are asking for the public’s assistance in attempting to identify the suspect in this case. 

We would also like to remind the public to remain vigilant while in the area and report any suspicious activity to the Marin County Sheriff’s Office. We will continue to provide both marked patrol vehicle extra patrols in addition to utilizing unmarked vehicles to canvas the area. 

If you recognize the suspect or have any information relevant to this investigation, please contact Detective Patton at L_Patton@marinsheriff.org or (415) 473-7265.

No further information will be released at this time.
