The named suspect is Edibaldo “Eddie” Duran, also known as Eddie Guerrero, a 25-year-old Mexican national who is 5 feet, two inches tall and weighs approximately 150-160 pounds, police said. Police are asking anyone with information on Duran/Guerrero’s whereabouts to call (203) 254-4808, or send information to the “Text A Tips” number 274637.  Text A Tips are completely confidential and can’t be traced, police have said.

The assault victim reported that her assailant spoke with a slight Spanish accent and had facial hair. Police have released two photos of Duran, one with a mustache and medium-length goatee, and an altered image with a more closely cropped beard. Police said they thought Duran trimmed his goatee the night before the attack.

Police revealed further details of the attack, saying the victim, a college student, was woken by the suspect, beaten, sexually assaulted, and strangled to the point of unconsciousness.

The assailant reportedly broke in to the house at 3 a.m. where the woman, who lived with other college students, was alone at the time.  Duran was identified as the alleged attacker, police said, after an “intensive investigation,” which included the scientific examination of physical evidence.

Fairfield Police have released two photos of the man they have identified as a suspect in a Sept. 1 home invasion and sexual assault on Berkeley Road.
