Woman captures attacker's image on cell phone

Police in Oakland, Calif., say a woman sexually assaulted by a man who broke in her home was able to use her cell phone to capture images of her assailant stealing her possessions.

The Oakland Tribune says the 28-year-old North Oakland woman was raped Tuesday morning by the man, who also stole her electronics during the attack.

Police say the woman used her cell phone to take video of the man hauling away her possessions. Police are now seeking the thin, bald man in a blue-and-white T-shirt shown in images taken from the video.

A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
