Police search for sex attacker who posed as Comcast employee

Union City police released a sketch depicting a man they say pushed his way into a woman’s home last month and sexually assaulted her while posing as a Comcast employee.

On Aug. 24, the man approached the victim’s front door on San Ramon Court wearing a red Comcast shirt, said Lt. Matias Pardo, a police spokesman.

The man told the victim he was there for a service call, Pardo said, but the woman said no such call had been scheduled and went to close the door.

That’s when the man pushed his way into the home and assaulted the woman, Pardo said.

A Comcast spokesman told police that, on occasion, an employee may stop by a customer’s house for an unscheduled service call, but they will always have photo identification visible. Customers who are unsure can call 1-800-COMCAST to check with the company.

The man in the August attack was described as roughly 30 years old, standing 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, weighing 180 pounds with a muscular build and short black hair. He was last seen wearing a red shirt and brown pants, Pardo said.

He encouraged anyone with information to call Detective Czar Valdehueza at (510) 675-5354.
