Video: This Man Is Accused Of Following A Woman Into Her Home And Groping Her
Police have released security footage of a man accused of sneaking into a 28-year-old Covina woman's apartment and groping her last month.
Police hope that someone can identify the masked man who followed the woman home around 4:30 a.m. on June 30 in the 1300 block of West San Bernardino Rd., KTLA reports. It shows the woman walking through a gate and into her building. Before the automated gate can close, however, a man slips through. He is seen pausing to wrap a bandana over his face, then enters the building behind her.
Sgt. Jim McDonough of the Covina Police Department said that the man then approached her from behind and groped her breasts and crotch. During the struggle that followed, the woman was reportedly forced to the ground where she was able to bite the man's finger. The video then shows the man running back outside, climbing over the gate and fleeing.
The suspect is described as Hispanic, 5'6 to 5'10, with a heavy build and was last seen wearing baggy blue jeans, a gray shirt and a yellow bandana. Anyone who with any information should contact the Covina Police Department.
