SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A probationer accused of jumping a 22-year-old woman on a Pacific Beach roadside and groping her pleaded not guilty Monday to misdemeanor sexual battery charges.
Eros Alejandro Dominguez, 30, was ordered held on $75,000 bail. He had been on probation for sexual battery on three victims, according to a prosecutor.
Dominguez allegedly grabbed the female pedestrian from behind in the 4500 block of Everts Street shortly before 11 p.m. last Wednesday and fondled her breasts before she was able to fight him off.
The assailant then ran off to the south, San Diego police Lt. David Rohowits said. Officers gave the man's description to employees of businesses along nearby Garnet Avenue, and several hours later, police got a report that a man matching the groper's description was in the 1000 block of Hornblend Street, the lieutenant said.
Patrol personnel found Dominguez in that area, arrested him and took him to county jail.
