DANVILLE (CBS SF) – Danville police were hunting for a man who groped a teenage girl in a public park Thursday evening.
The 14-year-old girl was walking past the tennis courts in Diablo Vista Park around 8:30 p.m. Thursday when she was approached by a man, police Lt. Jeff Moule said.
The suspect approached the girl, grabbed her in an embrace and touched her chest “in an inappropriate way,” Moule said.
When the girl broke away and ran to a family vehicle, the suspect fled into a wooded area east of the park.
A search of the area was conducted using forensics technicians and dogs, but the suspect was not located.
Police Friday released a sketch of the suspect created by a police artist, and will be canvassing the neighborhoods near the park looking for witnesses or information about the suspect.
The suspect was described as an Indian man who is about 60 years old, 5 feet 2 inches tall, and has a medium build and a gray mustache. He was wearing a black tracksuit.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Detective Sgt. Allan Shields at (925) 314-3710 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
