The Long Beach Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who detectives believe may be responsible for four separate incidents where adult female
victims were groped by an adult male suspect.

In each of the incidents, the suspect approached the victims on a bicycle, groped them, then fled on the bicycle. The incidents occurred on the following dates, times and locations:

Date:              Time:            Location:
7/29/2018     2:20 a.m.       300 block of Molino Avenue

9/19/2018     7:45 a.m.       East 8th Street & Junipero Avenue
12/27/2018   8:10 a.m.       4000 East Massachusetts Street

The suspect is being described as a male Hispanic, 40-50 years-old, 5’7” - 6’2” and 150-200 lbs., with gray hair riding a lime green bicycle.

Detectives would like to encourage anyone who may have also been a victim and has not reported the incident, to do so immediately by calling Police Dispatch at (562) 435-6711.
