Reno, NV (KRNV &— Reno Police arrested Richard Sharks for sexually assaulting an elderly woman in her home on Apr. 13, 2012 around 3:30 a.m.
Officers say Sharks was knocking on doors and telling residents that he had their wallet. Police say an elderly female victim partially opened her door, which had a security chain, and Sharks forced his way in and assaulted her. The victim was taken to the hospital and is being treated for her non-life threatening injuries.
Police say Sharks is a Tier 3 sex offender with four prior convictions including failure to register as a sex offender, open and gross lewdness, and battery with the intent to commit sexual assault.

Sharks was released from Nevada Department of Corrections in November 2011 after completing a sentence for sex offender failure to complete annual verification.
Sharks is being held without bail.

What a piece of garbage, some criminals can clean up their act and redeem themselves, but this sicko is mentally ill, Lock his sick crazy ass up and throw away the key. In the animal kingdom, the other animals kill the animals that are "off" and pose a threat to the rest of the pack/herd. In this case, not a bad idea at all, you can see the soulessness in his eyes. I hope he is judged and burns in hell.
