The latest reported groping occurred just before 11 p.m. Tuesday in a residential area near Oceanside Police Department headquarters on Mission Avenue, according to Oceanside police.

Two women were walking in 200 block of Fredericks Street when a man came up and groped one of the women's buttocks, police said.
