He groped the victim’s buttocks and in some cases pulled down their pants, Lt. John Strain said.

The man also did something else unusual as he ran away.

“In a couple of the occasions he apologized for the assault,” Strain said.

The attacks have all occurred mid-week in the morning or late evening hours in various locations around the city.

The suspect was described at a white man or light-skinned Hispanic, 18 to 20 years of age, with a thin build.

He may also have a tattoo of an unconfirmed nature on one of his arms, police say.

In one incident, a vehicle was associated to the suspect and it was described only as an older “boxy” black sedan.

Anyone with information was urged to contact  Detective Natalie Nguyen at (714) 573-3253.
