Man arrested for attempted rape after attack on woman

Redlands Police arrested a man for attempted rape shortly after he attacked a woman near an apartment complex south of the Zanja Tuesday afternoon.

Police received a 911 call at about noon Tuesday, March 15, from a witness who reported the attack on a woman near an apartment complex south of the Zanja between Alabama and Kansas streets.

As officers responded to the area and located the 41-year-old victim, an observer in the Department’s Cessna 172 Air Support Unit, Air 10, spotted the suspect running along the Zanja east of Kansas Street and directed officers to him.

The victim and witness positively identified the suspect, 54-year-old transient Donald Lee Eisenauer, as the attacker. The victim was previously acquainted with Eisenauer, who was arrested for attempted rape.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Detective Cindy Gourlay at (909) 798-7671 or Redlands Police Dispatch at (909) 798-7681. Anonymous tips can be provided by texting 274637 using the keyword “REDTIP.”
