OAKLAND -- The Oakland Police Department is urging residents to be cautious after an attempted assault Tuesday in the 1400 block of 3rd Avenue, east of Lake Merritt.

A woman reported that she was followed home by a man. When she arrived home, the man ordered her to take off her clothes before he ran away.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 510-238-3641.

It is unknown whether this incident is related to the brutal assault of a woman in Chinatown in February and three other assaults late last year and early this year in residential areas east of Lake Merritt.
