Video shows man attacking pre-teen in her house

KRON - SAN JOSE (KRON) – Parents of a San Jose pre-teen have released video that shows a man following their 13-year-old daughter into their house before attacking her.

Tuesday around 4 p.m. a man followed the young girl as she walked from school to her house in the 4000 block of Rio Vista Avenue.

The family's surveillance video shows a man following the girl across the street before stepping out of camera range.

The pre-teen said the man forced his way into the house and started to attack her. She was able to fight him off and the man ran off.

The young girl wasn't hurt in the attack.

He fled the residence and was last seen heading east, police said.The suspect is described as a white man between the ages of 25 and 30, weighing 155 pounds with a medium height, thin build, beard, tan complexion and dark shaggy hair, police said.

San Jose police think that this same man is responsible for another attack that happened on April 2.

In that attack, a man followed a 28-year-old woman into a public restroom at Mitsuwa Marketplace, a Japanese grocery store at 675 Saratoga Ave.

He attempted to sexually assault the woman in the restroom and fled before police arrived shortly before 1 p.m., police said.

He also had a smartphone and was seen with white earbuds in his ears, police said.

The suspect had a "weird" alcohol or cologne scent, according to police.

He may have been riding a light-blue 10-speed bicycle as well.
