TUSTIN, Calif. (KTLA) — Police were warning women in Tustin to be aware of a sexual predator who has already attacked six times since June.

In each case, the suspect approached his victims from behind.

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.
