Man Sought After Allegedly Sexually Assaulting Homeless Woman in Pasadena
A man was being sought in connection with the sexual assault of a homeless woman early Saturday morning in Pasadena, authorities said.
The victim and her boyfriend had been asleep in their encampment about 2:50 a.m. when the woman woke up, “startled to find herself partially unclothed and the suspect sleeping behind her,” the Pasadena Police Department said in a news release.
The intruder stood up and fled the scene on foot as the victim’s boyfriend ran after him, the statement said. The suspect, a homeless man, managed to escape and remained at large on Monday.
He was identified as 47-year-old Emilio Buch.
Investigators released a photo of Buch and asked anyone with information to call Lt. Terysa Rojas of the Pasadena Police Department at 626-744-4522 during business hours, or the non-emergency dispatch center at 626-744-4241. Tips can be submitted anonymously at LACrimeStoppers.com or wetip.com.
