(Original Story) Ladies frequenting Nob hill can feel a little safer now, that Serial Groper we reported on a while back has finally been caught by the SFPD. San Francisco police arrested 39-year-old Victor Vasquez who is believed to be responsible for sexually assaulting more than a dozen women in Nob Hill starting back in August of 2014.
Lt. Ed Santos of the San Francisco Police Department, said that Vasquez would see a woman he found attractive and walk up to her and touch her breasts or genitals, “whichever would satisfy his urge,” says Lt. Santos. Police say all the attacks were random & he targeted women of different races. The only common factor is that the attacks took place in Nob Hill, where Vasquez resided. Attacks took place at different times, day or night.
