Public Help Sought in State Street Attack


The Santa Barbara Police Department is requesting the public’s help in identifying a suspect — shown in the photograph and video — in a recent attempted sexual assault. The man could have been involved in an incident on Tuesday, April 1 at 9 p.m. on the 700 block of State Street in which a man went in the back door of a business and attacked a woman. The photograph and video are from security footage captured by Killer B’s BBQ and Bar at 718 State Street — the crime didn’t occur there, police said — before the attack.

People are encouraged to contact Det. Douglas Klug if they recognize the man. Klug can be reached at (805) 897-2346 or at dklug@sbpd.com, and calls can be made anonymously to (805) 897-2386.
