Huntington Beach police Thursday released a composite sketch of a suspect who groped a woman.
A woman returning home to her residence near Bolsa Chica Road and Warner Avenue about 1 a.m. Oct. 3 was grabbed from behind by a man who covered her mouth, Huntington Beach police Lt. Mitch O'Brien said.
The man, who was armed with a handgun, told the woman not to scream, but when she resisted they both tumbled to the ground, O'Brien said. The man groped the woman before fleeing, O'Brien added.
The man was described as about 22 to 26 years old, 5-foot-7 with a medium build, O'Brien said. He was wearing a black, short-sleeved T-shirt with white and blue designs and blue jeans.
Anyone with information was asked to call police at (714) 375-5066 or Orange County Crime Stoppers, which accepts anonymous tips, at (855) TIP-OCCS.
