FULLERTON (CBSLA.com) — Police asked for the public’s help to track down two men who inappropriately touched two women in separate incidents.

The latest incident happened at about 1:15 p.m. Thursday, in a store in the 1700 block of West Orangethorpe Avenue, Fullerton police Sgt. Jon Radus said.

The suspect approached the victim and “sexually battered her from behind,” Radus said.

The first incident was reported at about 6 p.m. on Aug. 6 at Caitlin and Sheddon streets, when a woman walking her dog was similarly attacked, he said.

In that incident, the suspect “calmly walked away when the victim started yelling,” Radus said.

The suspect in the Aug. 6 incident was described as a black man in his 20s, 5-foot-9 with a medium build, clean shaven, short hair and wearing three gold studs in his ear.

In Thursday’s incident, the suspect was described as a Latino man in his 30s to 40s with short black hair and brown eyes, 5-foot-8, about 180 pounds, wearing a blue, button-down shirt and Dockers-style pants. He had a female companion described as a Latina with long, black hair in a side ponytail, wearing a floral-print dress.

Anyone with information about either incident can call Detctive Karin Wright at (714) 738-6754.
