San Mateo police are looking for a man who assaulted a woman by holding her in a “bear hug” type hold in San Mateo late Thursday night. A 24-year-old woman was walking east on a pedestrian walkway on East Third Avenue overlooking U.S. Highway 101 around 11:40 p.m. when she noticed a man was following her, police said.
