Turlock police have released a sketch of the suspect believed responsible for a series of four separate assaults on teenage females.
All four assaults allegedly took place March 24 and 25 in the area of Christoffersen Parkway, between Walnut Road and McKenna Drive. The suspect allegedly groped the first two victims and grabbed the third victim’s arm.
Turlock Police Spokesperson Mayra Lewis says a fourth, previously unreported victim came forward after the first three incidents occurred. The fourth victim was not touched, Lewis said, and the suspect only made inappropriate comments to her.
The fourth incident occurred in the area of Turlock Junior High School, where the victim attends school, but the exact location of the incident is unknown. Lewis said the suspect “made a comment regarding (the victim’s) appearance.”
The fourth victim reported the incident to the school’s resource officer on the morning of the incident, Lewis said.
The four girls all gave a similar description of the suspect as a Caucasian male in his mid-20s, weighing between 150 and 170 pounds and standing between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was described as having light brown/reddish hair with scruffy facial hair.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Turlock Police Department at 209-668-5550.
