OAKLAND -- Police are searching for a 14-year-old boy they say has robbed and sexually assaulted two women in the last two weeks, both of whom were twice his age.
Investigators said the boy is named Brionn Glasper. He is 5 feet 5 inches tall, about 110 pounds and African American, with black hair and brown eyes. Police say he should be considered armed and dangerous.
On Jan. 12, according to investigators, a 28-year-old woman reported being attacked as she walked at about 9:15 p.m. in the 600 block of 11th Street, between Interstate 980 and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
A young man on a bicycle approached her pretending to have a gun, demanding her purse and forcing her into an isolated area nearby where he assaulted her, she told detectives.
Six days earlier, another 28-year-old woman reported a similar attack just a few blocks away. At about 10 p.m. Jan. 6, the woman said, a young man walked up to her and pretended to have a gun, and he demanded her wallet and assaulted her.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Youth and Family Service Division at 510-238-3641.
