Suspect grabs young girls
TPD crime scene

The Turlock Police Department is seeking a man who grabbed two young girls out for a bike ride Friday night.

The suspect grabbed one girl on her buttocks and the arm of the other girl, according to the mother of one of the victims.

Around 10 p.m. Friday the girls were out riding their bikes with an adult walking behind them. The girls were slightly in front of the adult and as they approached a shadowy area of W. Christoffersen Parkway and Crowell Road a man jumped out and grabbed them.

The girls both screamed and slipped out of the man’s grasp.

The suspect was described as a white male in his 20s. He had shoulder length red hair and was wearing a gray or white T-shirt and dark pants. He also had a red mark on the side of his forehead.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the Turlock Police Department at 668-5550.
