Identity of man who touched woman inappropriately wanted by Mountain View PD


(KRON) – The identity of a man who inappropriately touched a woman walking around last week is being sought by Mountain View police detectives. The Mountain View Police Department said it was asking for the public’s help in identifying the man, in a news release Friday.

The incident in question took place on April 24 at approximately 10:30 p.m. when patrol officers responded to the Sierra Vista Avenue and Rock Street area for a report of a sexual assault. Upon arrival, officers encountered a woman who told them she was walking her dog when a man approached her and groped her. According to police, the woman fought back bravely and struck the suspect with her elbow.

The suspect then fled. The police conducted a thorough search but could not locate him. Police also searched for home security footage as part of the investigation, but found none. As a result, a sketch was created of the suspect in hopes he could be recognized.

The suspect is described as an adult Hispanic male, between the ages of 19 and 25, about 5ft 5in tall with a slim build, wavy black hair and a black mustache. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie that police described as “loose and bulky” with no markings on it, brown track pants with a red stripe down the leg and white sneakers.

As he fled, the suspect was seen taking off his sweatshirt. Underneath, he wore a white concert shirt with several band names, venues and tour dates on the back. The suspect was last seen near the southeast corner of Rengstorff Avenue and Rock Street.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity or who recognizes him is asked to contact Det. Christine Powell at [email protected]
