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.
