Police in California seek boy, 14, in sexual assaults

Police in Oakland, California, are asking the public for its help in finding a 14-year-old boy wanted in connection with two sexual assaults.

The teen is suspected of attacking two 28-year-old women, in separate incidents on January 6 and January 12.

In the first case, the teen approached the woman while she was walking, pretended to have a firearm and demanded her wallet, before forcing her to an isolated area where he sexually assaulted her, police said.

In the second case, he approached the woman on a bicycle, again pretended to have a firearm and demanded the woman's purse, before forcing her to an isolated area and sexually assaulted her, they said.

The teen, whom CNN is not identifying because of his age, should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

    I hope they catch the little jerk!
    @banasy: Right? S-e-x-u-a-l assault is kind of a broad term. They probably did mean raype, though.
