Female bicyclist harassed, sexually battered in Azusa

AZUSA – Two bicyclists sexually harassed a 22-year-old woman while she was jogging Wednesday night.
Azusa Police Andy Sutcliffe said the suspects made sexually suggestive comments to the jogger and one even grabbed her.
At 5:37 p.m., he said an Azusa Pacific University student was jogging eastbound in the 1000 block of East Alosta Avenue when she noticed two bicyclists riding toward her.
“As they approached, she heard both men making inappropriate comments about her of a sexual nature,” he said.
As the men rode on either side of the jogger, Sutcliffe said one of the suspects reached out and grabbed the woman. Sutcliffe didn’t say where the victim was touched but said what happened was a sexual battery.
The woman confronted the suspects who continued making the sexual comments as they rode west on Alosta Avenue and out of sight.
One of the suspects was described as a white man in his early 20s with a shaved head. He is 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs 165 pounds and wore a red checkered Pendleton long-sleeved shirt and blue jeans. He was riding a red beach cruiser-style bicycle.
The other suspect was described as a Latino in his early 20s and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a gray-and-green hooded jacket and dark-colored pants. He used a dark colored mountain bike.
Anyone with information on the suspects and the case is asked to call the Azusa Police Department at 626-812-3238.
