Omar Sosa Wanted by Berkeley Police for Alleged Sexual Assault
Police this afternoon released a photo of a man believed to have sexually assaulted a girl in her North Berkeley bedroom early Saturday morning. Omar Sosa, 27, of Berkeley, is suspected of forcing his way through an unlocked window at a residence on Evelyn Street just after 6 a.m., and sexually assaulting a young girl in her room, Berkeley police said. Detectives believe Sosa likely fled the Bay Area after the attack and is heading south in an effort to flee to Mexico.
According to information made public this afternoon, police said Sosa is driving a gray 1997 Ford Ranger pickup truck with a double cab and a white camper shell.
Sosa, who is suspected of rape, sodomy, false imprisonment, oral copulation, burglary and sexual battery, is described as a clean-shaven Hispanic man between 20 and 30 years old, around 6 feet tall and weighing approximately 190 pounds. He is said to have a “very pronounced nose” and he speaks with a heavy accent. His hair is 1 to 2 inches long and he was last seen wearing blue jeans, a light-colored shirt, and a black zip-up hoodie.
Police added that he might have injuries on his hands or fingers. Berkeley police are urging the community to help investigators identify the suspect.
