It happened on Nov. 13 at around 6:50 p.m. at a laundromat on the corner of Marina Boulevard and Washington Avenue. Officers said a 36-year-old woman was doing laundry when the man groped her in a sexual manner.

Police said he ran off when the woman called police. Police also said the man drove away in a white Honda Civic.

“We are asking the public for assistance in promptly identifying this man. This information will allow us to hold him accountable for his criminal behavior and protect others from potential harm,” Lt. Robert McManus said.

The suspect is described as Hispanic, in his early-to-mid-20s, and about 5 feet 8 inches tall. He has a medium, athletic build, police said.

Police said he was also clean shaven, with a neatly-trimmed haircut. He was wearing a gray “GAP” hoodie, with khakis.
