Private Party Damage Assessment Form

Private Party Damage Assessment Form
Due to the recent series of storms and the Governor’s request for a Presidential
Major Disaster Declaration for the damage, the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office
of Emergency Services is making available an Individual Damage Assessment
form. The form allows private parties (e.g. individuals, HOA’s, etc.) to track their
damage from the storms and it could assist in receiving a Presidential Major
Disaster Declaration. However, completing the form does not guarantee any
reimbursement for losses due to the storms. It is simply a very thorough method
of tracking damage and reporting it to the State and Federal Government.
The Individual Damage Assessment form is located on the County’s website under
the “Current Topics” icon and is labeled “Private Party Damage Assessment
Form”. Click on the link and you can fill out the form electronically or print out
the form and complete it by hand.

Please complete the form to the best of your ability and email electronic copies or scanned copies to or you can drop your form off at the Sheriff’s Office at 300 Fair Lane, Placerville, CA.  If you have any questions about the form please call Deputy Todd Crawford at 530-621-7660.

Sexual Assault Update

For Immediate Release

Sergeant Tasha Thompson

On January 27, 2017, at approximately 1:00 PM, an El Dorado County resident was walking on the bike trail, located near Missouri Flat Road, with her child in a stroller.  A male approached her from behind and asked her about the location of a nearby business. The male asked for a dollar and asked to shake her hand after she gave the dollar to him. When the male grabbed a hold of her hand, he pulled her in close and used his other hand to sexually assault her. The male continued to hold on to her as she screamed for help and began fighting back. He then released her, apologized, and ran south from the trail. While running away, the male lost his shoe which was later collected by the Sheriff’s Office.

The male is described as being 14 to 20 years old, a dark skinned Hispanic, standing approximately 5’7” tall and weighing 130 pounds. The male had dark hair and brown eyes. The male’s hair was described as messy, with two to three inches in length that stood straight up. The male was wearing a “sky blue” short sleeved polo shirt, blue jeans and red Nike shoes.

UPDATE: 02/14/17 at 0830 hours:

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the communities help in identifying this person. If the description sounds familiar to a person you know, please contact Detective Anthony Prencipe at (530) 642-4709.  Detectives are currently reviewing video surveillance in the area and hope to provide a picture of the person in the future.
