SAN FRANCISCO, CA – District Attorney George Gascón announced today that a jury convicted Frederick Dozier, age 31, of 25 felony counts including kidnapping, sexual assault and robbery for brutal rapes that occurred between June 2011 and December 2011 in the Mission District.

“For 6 months, women in the Mission District lived in fear because of this violent predator,” said District Attorney George Gascón. “This conviction sends a message that violence against women is unacceptable and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

According to court documents, the defendant is connected to three separate sexual assaults that occurred between June and December of 2011. On June 17, 2011 at approximately 2:50am in the area of 24th St. and South Van Ness., Frederick Dozier, Jr. approached and grabbed Victim 1. Dozier muffled her screams with his hands, ordered her not to scream, dragged her to a nearby driveway, then sexually assaulted and robbed Victim 1 before fleeing on foot.

On November 18, 2011 at approximately 4:00am in the area of 24th St. and Potrero St., Frederick Dozier, Jr., approached Victim 2, grabbed and choked her. He punched her when she refused his demands, then sexually assaulted and robbed her. Dozier then twisted Victim 2’s neck and used a blunt object to strike her before fleeing on foot.

On December 8, 2011 at approximately 6:20am in the area of 24th St. and Fair Oaks St., Frederick Dozier, Jr, approached Victim 3, choked her and ordered her not to scream. After a struggle, she lost consciousness and woke up to the defendant sexually assaulting her. Dozier then punched Victim 3 in the face, slammed her face into the concrete sidewalk and took her bag before fleeing on foot.

The trial was in front of Judge Massullo in Department 25. The jury deliberated for 4 days and found the defendant guilty of 25 of 26 felony counts including multiple counts of kidnapping, sexual assault and robbery. Dozier is facing life in prison. He will be sentenced on December 14, 1:30pm.

The conviction of Frederick Dozier is the result of a first-rate investigation by Inspectors Nannery and Gillespie of the San Francisco Police Department. Jerdine Clarke was the Victim Advocate. Assistant District Attorney Marshall Khine prosecuted the case.
