Riverside police are searching for a man who allegedly tried to grab a teenage girl by the hair at a park restroom, authorities said Tuesday.
Around 2:30 p.m. April 15, the girl was in a restroom at Orange Terrace Park Community Center on 20010 Orange Terrace Parkway, when she was approached by a man, Riverside police officer Ryan Railsback said.
