Arthur Fodor accused of groping woman while walking dog

Police arrested a Palo Alto man for sexual battery after he allegedly groped a woman last month on a sidewalk while walking his dog.

Arthur Julian Fodor, 23, was arrested Sept. 18 and booked into the San Mateo County Main Jail following an investigation by detectives, according to a press release.

Fodor is charged with one misdemeanor count of sexual battery and one misdemeanor count of lewd conduct.

On Aug. 7, at around 6 p.m., a woman in her 50s reported to police that she had been groped in the 2300 block of Amherst Street by a man walking a dog. The suspect fled in an unknown direction with his dog when the woman took out her cell phone. She was not injured, and provided a detailed description of the suspect to police.

Where in Palo Alto did he live? Near the location of the attack? How long was he a resident here? LinkedIn says he graduated from Hillsdale High School.
