A Carmichael man is being held on $1 million bail for allegedly attacking a woman along the Arcade Creek trail on April 21.
Sgt. Lisa Bowman with the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department said 28-year-old David Oliver Dixon is suspected of getting off his bicycle on the trail that Monday,brandishing a weapon and grabbing the victim by the arm. The woman was able to break free and run away.
Bowman said investigators are also looking into whether Dixon is responsible for another attack on March 21. In that incident, a man on a bike on the same trail grabbed a woman who was jogging and wrestled her to the ground with the intent of sexually assaulting her. The man fled.
Dixon was arrested Monday and booked into Sacramento County Jail on charges including assault with intent to commit a felony and false imprisonment, Bowman said.
