Friday, January 13 

At about 12:48 p.m., officers were dispatched to the station lobby 
regarding a Sexual Battery report. The victim stated she was 
walking east to Baldwin Ave. in the 100 block of E. Sierra Madre 
Bl. when she was approached by a male (suspect) that made a 
comment to her and continued to walk west on Sierra Madre Bl. 
After the victim crossed the street and was walking west to an 
appointment, the suspect approached her again and engaged her 
in a conversation. At this point the suspect hugged the victim and 
began to grope her body and kissed her on the cheek. The victim

reported the incident. The suspect is described as a male Asian,
