Man groped Irvine girls going home from school, police say
Irvine police are looking for a man in his mid-20s who they said groped two young girls on their way home from a bus stop last week.
The 12-year-old victims described the man as African American, 6 feet tall, muscular and having curly hair tied back into a short pony tail, according to a Police Department news release.
The girls were walking in the Quail Hill community at 3:30 p.m. when they were approached by the man, who appeared to be jogging. He touched the girls over their clothing, then fled on foot, police said.
The girls saw the suspect shortly later driving in a small, white sport-type vehicle, according to the Daily Pilot.
