Riverside Police Attempting to Identify Man Accused of Striking Woman Who Rebuffed Sexual Advances

ID #17-166

Authorities on Friday were attempting to identify a man accused of striking a woman who rebuffed him after he had followed her and her friends for blocks to a Riverside parking garage.

Riverside police released images of an unidentified suspect in a felony battery case on April 7, 2017.

The incident began around 3 a.m. on March 12 when the man and his friend pursued the victim and her friends for about three blocks as they returned to their car, beginning in the 3600 block of Mission Inn Avenue, according to a Facebook post from the Riverside Police Department.

Once they reached the parking structure, located at 3473 Orange St., the victim captured video of the suspect dancing, officers said.

At some point during their exchange, the suspect made sexual advances toward the woman, which she rebuffed, police said. He then allegedly punched her in the face, delivering significant injury with the blow.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man who is between 21 and 24 years old, weighs 160 pounds and is about 5 feet, 7 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a red and gray flannel shirt over a white T-shirt with dark jeans and a black hat.
