Stanford University deputies are searching for a man who groped a woman leaving a concert at Frost Amphitheater on Wednesday night, according to Department of Public Safety staff.

The woman was waiting to cross the street at the corner of Lausen Street and Campus Drive East, about a block away from Palm Drive around 10:25 p.m., when the man came from behind and grabbed her buttocks, according to an alert issued Wednesday night.

What's up with all this groping lately? Did men do this to random women as much in the past and women didn't report it?

Seriously? If so, start with asking your friends and acquaintances. Or listen to fellas like Ahnuld or Donny describe it. Here's a good rule: if they admit it, believe them. If they admit it, much more is going on "behind the curtain".

"If they admit it, much more is going on ..."
99% of all that guy-talk is empty bravado or pure fantasy.

Young blond white man isn't much to go on. I hope the cops can release an artists sketch of the perp before he attacks another woman.

Ah, the "it's just locker room talk" defense.

We must visit a different type of locker room. For example, I've never heard anyone in a locker room say: "Grab 'em by the p****. You can do anything..."

What locker rooms have you frequented where such words are uttered?
