WALNUT CREEK – Bay Area man facing charges of attempting to sexually assault a girl in broad daylight reportedly later told police he could have raped her if passers-by had not watched .

Alexandr Birger, 46, faces charges of assault, attempted rape, sexual assault, obscene act on a child and possession of child pornography in connection with the August 28 incident, according to court records. In an interview with police, Birger, who has several swastikas and other neo-Nazi images drawn on his leg, allegedly explained that he attacked the victim because he didn’t like black people.

Birger, who remains in custody without bail, is due in court on January 26. His lawyer questioned his mental abilities and a doctor agreed he was unfit to stand trial, but prosecutors are still determining whether to dispute the find, records show.

Birger was arrested after allegedly “hugging a bear” a teenage girl, who is only publicly identified by the pseudonym “Jane Doe,” police said in court records. The alleged victim was about to pick up food from a restaurant in Walnut Creek when Birger allegedly approached her at a crosswalk and started fiddling with her.

The attack occurred at around 12:15 p.m., as a result of several people calling 9-1-1, prompting Birger to stop assaulting the girl, police said in court records. The girl was briefly hospitalized after the attack.

In an interview, Birger reportedly told police he enjoyed watching the girl cry and believed he could have raped her if passers-by had not been present. He said it was the first time he had done something like this, according to court records. He also reportedly told police he didn’t like black people, prompting authorities to investigate the possibility that he targeted the victim because of his race. No hate crime charges were ultimately laid.

Police searched Birger’s computer and cell phone and found three suspected child pornography files, as well as 70 files depicting women of “questionable age,” according to court records.
