A suspect is in custody following a report of sexual battery at a Planned Parenthood in Redwood City, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. The suspect was identified as 38-year-old Marcelo Arancibia from Redwood City. Officials say around 8:10 a.m. on Saturday, Arancibia walked into the lobby of Planned Parenthood.
Authorities say he went up to a woman and touched her buttocks. They say he then exposed himself and began masturbating in front of her. Sheriff’s Deputies were able to find and arrest him not long after he fled the scene. Arancibia has since been booked into the San Mateo County Jail.
This case remains under investigation, but authorities say there are no other reports on this suspect at this time. If you have any information on this incident, you’re asked to contact the sheriff’s anonymous tip line at 1-800-547-2700.
