LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Police are canvassing a Long Beach neighborhood in an attempt to find a serial groper they say has victimized about three dozen women over the past year.
City News Service reports officers were going door-to-door and passing out flyers Friday in a neighborhood near 5th Street.
Police say the man has targeted at least 35 women since last Sept. 1.
He rides up behind women on a bicycle and grabs them before riding away. Victims have ranged in age from as young as 12 to people in their mid-60s.
The man is described as white or Hispanic, about 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighing 180 to 240 pounds.
He is believed to be about 35 to 45 years old, with gray or black hair.
