Man Gropes Woman, Walks Right Into the Wheels of Justice

A groper walked right into the waiting arms of police officers downtown Thursday night.

Around 9:30 pm, the 23-year-old suspect walked up to a woman, who was standing in front of the Hard Rock Cafe at 1st Avenue and Pike Street, and groped her. The woman screamed and jumped away from the man, who walked off down the street—towards two waiting bike patrol officers, who had seen the whole thing.

The officers arrested the man for assault and a misdemeanor warrant.
