Man grabs woman from behind as she checks tire pressure

A 28-year-old Huntington Beach woman on Saturday reported that a man grabbed her from behind and pulled her hair as she checked her vehicle’s tire pressure, police said.

The woman had pulled over about 4:15 p.m. on Langley and Dixon streets because of what she thought might be low tire pressure, according to Glendale police.

As she checked her tires, a man grabbed her waist and hair and pulled her back, police said.

She quickly turned around and saw a man, who she immediately punched in the face, police said.

The woman then got back into her car and drove into a nearby neighborhood, where she called police.

She suffered a small finger cut from punching the man, police said.

Police were unable to find the man, who she described as male, white or Middle Eastern, 6 feet tall, 30 to 35 years old, with short black hair and a beard, according to reports. He was wearing a white T-shirt and jeans.
