Police in Palo Alto today released a sketch of a suspect who reached up a woman’s dress and grabbed her buttocks on Monday. Officers responded to a report of a sexual assault in the 600 block of Fulton Street at about noon, according to Palo Alto police. The victim, a woman in her 20s, had stopped near the front door of her car to look for her keys in her purse.
