Burbank police search for man who groped girl, 14, on sidewalk

Burbank police are looking for a man who allegedly groped a 14-year-old girl Tuesday as she and her older sister walked home from school.

The girl and her 17-year-old sister were walking about 3:20 p.m. in the 200 block of North San Fernando Road toward a bus stop on Olive Avenue when they passed the man, police said.

The man – who was standing on the corner of San Fernando Road and Palm Avenue -- suddenly ran up to the girl, squeezed her buttocks and fled through a pathway on San Fernando Road.

Police said the girls have seen the man twice in the past two weeks.

The first time they saw him was two weeks ago in the area of the Glendale Galleria and then again on Friday in the area of San Fernando Road and Palm Avenue, police said.

The man was described as white, 30 to 35 years old, about 5 foot 7 inches tall and roughly 180 pounds. His shoulder-length hair appeared to be dyed yellow and was combed back.

Anyone with details about the incident, or who was in the area at the time of the incident, was encouraged to call Det. Celia Hawver at (818) 238-3253.
