Police are looking for a man who allegedly groped a woman in downtown Palo Alto Tuesday evening, according to a police department press release.
At about 6:33 p.m., a woman in her 20s was walking her dog on the 500 block of Emerson Street when she saw a man walking through the parking garage at 539 Emerson St. The man was yelling but at no one in particular, the woman told police. The man then approached the woman and grabbed her rear, then walked south on Emerson, police said.
The woman scolded the man, and he shouted obscenities at her as he continued to walk away, police said. The woman then called police. Officers arrived at the scene but were unable to locate the man.
He is described as a white male in his 30s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a skinny build. He had salt-and-pepper hair that was parted on the side and gelled back. He was wearing a black zippered jacket with a small logo on the chest and blue jeans. No sketch of the man is available at this time, police stated.
