Girl allegedly assaulted while riding her bike

El Dorado County Sheriff’s deputies were unable to get an accurate description of a man who allegedly attacked a 9-year-old girl while she was riding her bike on Plateau Circle about 5 p.m. April 13.

During a Thursday interview, the child’s mother said her daughter was riding her bike with a group of boys when a man apparently came out of the woods and attacked her daughter, putting his hands around her neck.

The boys noticed the 9-year-old was no longer with them and came back, apparently scaring the man off, she said.

El Dorado County Sheriff’s were not able to get a useful description of the man, according to a sheriff’s media log.

Sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Pete Van Arnum did not immediately return a request for more information about the incident Friday afternoon.
