Police are attempting to locate a man who groped a woman walking
in El Cerrito last week.
The woman was walking near the intersection of Potrero Avenue and
South 53rd Street near the Richmond border around 8:15 a.m. Friday when a man
grabbed her buttocks and tried to touch her crotch, according to police.
Police said the woman ran away and the suspect was last seen
fleeing south on South 53rd Street.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic man in his 20s without
facial hair who is roughly 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs about 175 pounds,
according to police.
He was wearing a green, v-neck T-shirt and baggy dark blue jeans
that appeared to be construction-type clothing, police said.
Anyone with information about the case may call El Cerrito police
at (510) 215-4414, ext. 40.
