A sex molester suspected of ripping the pants and underwear off of a 13-year-old girl in Yorba Linda was hunted Saturday by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Special Victims Detail.
The man approached two 13-year-old girls on swings at a playground at the Fairgreen condominium complex in the 6600 block of Fairlynn Boulevard about 8 p.m. Monday and asked them to perform a sex act, according to Jaimee Blashaw of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
The teens refused and one girl walked away. The suspect made another lewd remark to the girl who remained behind, who then got up and quickly walked away, according to Blashaw.
The suspect then chased after the second victim and pulled her pants and underwear down from behind. The man then held the girl and groped her buttocks. The victim was able to break free and run, according to Blashaw.
The incident was reported to sheriff’s deputies Tuesday.
The suspect is white, between 17 and 25 years old with dark-brown, curly hair covering the tops of his ears. He is about 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs about 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a light-colored T-shirt and black basketball shorts, Blashaw said.
Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the suspect was asked to call the Orange County Sheriff Department’s Special Victims Detail at (714) 647-7418 or (714) 647-7000.
Tipsters can also contact Orange County Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS (855-847-6227) or occrimestoppers.org.
