Police seek bicyclist who gropes Long Beach women
LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Long Beach police are seeking a bicyclist they say has been groping female victims as young as 12 and as old as their mid-60s while riding past them.
In a release Tuesday, police say the stocky, dark-haired man first grabbed a woman’s breast while riding past her in December, more than a half-dozen incidents followed in February and March.
Police say the suspect may have access to several bikes because victims have given varying descriptions.
Police have released video footage of the bike rider in hopes he will be identified.
Anyone that has also been a victim that has not reported the incident to police or recognizes the suspect is asked to contact Long Beach Police Sex Crimes Detective Mike Solomita at (562) 570-7368.
