SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man who walked up behind a 14-year-old girl Friday morning near Hoover High School and touched her several times, while urging her to go somewhere with him, was at large, police said.
The girl was walking toward the high school in the 4400 block of University Avenue around 7:55 a.m. when the man approached, according to San Diego police.
He grabbed her buttocks three times and left after the girl sped up and continued on to school, police said.
The man was described as Hispanic, in his 30s, with short, dark, brown, messy hair, brown eyes, acne scars and a thin build. He was wearing a long-sleeve white shirt and white pants with paint on them.
