The Kern County Sheriff's office is asking for the public's help for suspects wanted in three assaults that may be related to each other.

The Sheriff's Office said they are looking for two cars wanted in connection to two separate assaults that might be connected to a third one in the McFarland and Delano area.

The first incident involved an elderly female who was sexually assaulted after being struck by a car in east McFarland on June 15th. She was driven to a secluded orchard in what is believed to be a black Toyota Camry, possibly a 2010-2011 model, KCSO said. 

Another female victim was assaulted on August 10 southwest of Delano near a grape vinyard near Woollomes Avenue and Melcher Road, KCSO said. The suspect in this case fled in a vehicle described as a dark blue or black 2000's Yukon or Tahoe with large chrome rims.

KCSO is investigating if these two assaults and another assault that took place in the McFarland area on May 5 are related. Detectives are asking people who work near the orchards and vineyards in the McFarland and Delano areas to look out for the described vehicles.

If you have any information on the vehicles, KCSO asks that you call Detective Barker at 661-391-7597, the Sheriff's Office at 661-861-3110, or Secret Witness at 661-322-4040.
