The Santa Ana Police Department is looking for a sexual groper who struck females walking alone in that city last September, October and January.
The first incident happened just after 11 p.m. Sept, 4, when an unidentified female walking in the area of Raitt Street, south of McFadden Avenue, was approached by a man who tried to start a conversation. But soon he got grabby, pinned the female against a tree (and out of sight of passing cars) and began groping and sexually assaulting her. She escaped by yelling, scratching his face and darting off.
Police have video of the second incident, which happened Oct. 7 in the parking lot of the FedEx print shop at 3701 S. Bristol St., Santa Ana. The lone female, also unidentified, was walking toward her car when a fellow caught up with her and briefly tried to engage her in conversation, identifying himself as "Victor." When both were between two parked cars, he began touching and assaulting her, which prompted her to scream and begin calling for help from security—which prompted Sir Douche to split.
Here is the video:
It was from that encounter that police got a gander at the baddie's distinctive white t-shirt with graphics. He also wore dark shorts and black tennis shoes.

Finally, around 10 p.m. on New Year's Day 2016, a third lone female near Raitt—but this time north of McFadden—was approached by a guy who tried to chat her up, called himself "Victor" and sexually assaulted her. She managed to punch him in the face, but he managed to violently push her to the ground before fleeing.
So who is this dream boat? Trying to find out the answer to that very question, police want the public to know he is Latino, between 24 and 29 years old, 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-8, ’04”-5’08” tall and 150 to 165 pounds.
Anyone who think they know who he is or has more information related to the crimes is asked to contact Detective Corporal Javier Aceves at 714.245.8542.
