Berkeley Police Searching For Alleged Sexual Assault Suspect, Omar Sosa Arenal, Believed To Be In Mexico
Tips have been coming into Berkeley police since a man wanted for a 2010 sexual assault in the city was featured on a TV show earlier this month. After Omar Sosa Arenal, 29, was profiled, investigators received a flurry of tips that have led them to believe he is in Veracruz, Mexico, police said today. Arenal is suspected of entering a juvenile victim’s bedroom in Berkeley early the morning of Nov. 10, 2010, and sexually assaulting the victim, who police said was targeted at random.
Detectives working with the U.S. Marshals Service are following up on the tips, including calls about sightings of Arenal in the Mexican state of Veracruz. Arenal is believed to be from the Veracruz area, and may have fled there after the sexual assault, police said. There is a no-bail warrant for his arrest, according to police. “Our detectives haven’t stopped looking for him,” Berkeley police spokeswoman Jennifer Coats said. She said police efforts, along with the case’s exposure on the show, have kept the case visible.
Arenal may be wearing a stud earring in his left ear and that he likes playing soccer and drinking Corona beer. Berkeley police are asking anyone with connections to Veracruz to be on the lookout for the wanted man.
