Oakland police release photo of kidnapping, robbery suspect

OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Police are warning for Oakland residents about a kidnapping, robbery and sexual assault suspect.

Police released a photo from a surveillance camera of a man they're searching for who they say he is armed.

A 23 year old woman was walking on Broadway when a stranger came up behind her on Sunday.

She told police he forced her to a secluded location where he allegedly robbed and sexually assaulted her.

Investigators are looking into a possible connection involving the same suspect.

A similar attack happened last month less than a mile away in the area of Piedmont and Randwick avenues.
