Police are investigating a second report this week that a boy was molested in a public beach restroom in the South Bay.

A man fondled a boy's genitals yesterday in a bathroom stall at Polliwog Park in Manhattan Beach, City News Service reports. The child was in the men's room alone. The suspect is believed to be white, in his 40s with gray hair and a "medium build."

Police think it may be related to a similar incident reported in Hermosa Beach on Wednesday.
