A man battered and groped a woman as she was walking in Ocean Beach today, authorities reported.
The assailant came up behind the victim in the 1600 block of Ocean Front Street shortly before 9 a.m. and hit her on the head, according to San Diego
“The man told the woman to be quiet and he wouldn’t hurt her, and then he groped her breast,” SDPD Officer Dan Lasher said.
Following the assault, the attacker ran off into the neighborhood.
Patrol officers searched the area but were unable to find him.
The victim, who was taken to a hospital for an evaluation, described the assailant as a muscular, roughly 5-foot-5-inch white man in plaid shorts and
a green-and-white basketball jersey, Lasher said.
