Police are on the hunt today for a man who allegedly drove up behind a 17-year-old girl in North Hills on Tuesday, jumped out of the car, stripped naked, grabbed her butt, and drove away.

City News Service reports that the bizarre incident went down at about 11:30 a.m. near the intersection of Plummer Street and Haskell Avenue. The man in question, who's described as about 30 years old, 5'6 and 160 pounds with a mustache, covered up the license plates of the car he was in before whipping off the remainder of his garments.

The girl screamed after he grabbed her, but he then ran right back to the car and left. In another surprising twist, the assailant wasn't alone -- there was a second man driving the car.

It's also not an isolated event -- nine similar attacks have happened in the area since January.
