Teen Groped Woman on Trail in Cheshire: Police

A teen on a bicycle groped a woman on a trail in Cheshire on Thursday evening and police are trying to identify him.

The woman told police she was jogging on the Linear Trail in the area of North Brooksvale Road around 4:45 p.m. on Thursday when a teen on a bicycle approached her from behind, grabbed her buttocks and rode away.

The woman continued to run, and reported what happened to a Cheshire Police officer who was on patrol in the Lock 12 Historical Park. 

The woman described the assailant as a teen, between 16 and 18, who was wearing shorts and a white T-shirt, police said.

A second police officer on bicycle was in the area and searched the trail, but did not find anyone matching the description.

Police ask anyone with information to call Cheshire Police at 203-271-5500.
