Police Release New Surveillance Video Of Long Beach Serial Groper

LONG BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Long Beach police hope new surveillance video released Tuesday will help find a serial groper who sexually attacks girls and women while riding his bicycle.

Around 20 incidents have been reported since late last year in a one-mile radius on or near Fourth Street between Chestnut and Junipero avenues.

Authorities said the unidentified man often rides different bikes and strikes in broad daylight and at night.

The victims range in age from 12 years old to a woman in her mid-60s.

Sgt. Aaron Eaton said when police initially released a video to the media of the suspect groping a woman last December, the assaults stopped for a few months.

In the last few weeks, however, the attacks have started again.

“He either gropes their buttocks or breast. Oftentimes, it’s a surprise attack from behind and the victims aren’t really sure what’s happened. By the time they realize it, he’s (gone),” said Eaton.

Pedestrians in the area were sickened when they were told of the suspect’s list of crimes.

“That’s terrible. He’s a sick pervert, that’s what I think of it,” said LaDonna Lee.

Daniella Laury said, “I probably would have punched him or tracked him down and punched him because that’s disgusting. He shouldn’t be doing that to females.”
