KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — Kaiserslautern police are seeking information on the identity of a young male wanted for repeatedly groping women in Kaiserslautern.

Since July 18, the suspect has sexually molested/harassed women five times during evening hours. The last incident occurred Aug. 17.

“He follows women through town, grabs them and tries to kiss them or grabs them under their clothes,” said Christiane Lautenschläger, a spokeswoman with the Kaiserslautern police.

As the victims — all German women — have cried out, the suspect has fled, by either foot or on a mountain bike, Lautenschläger said.

Victims have described the suspect as being between the ages of 18 and 25, from 5-foot-9 inches to 6 feet tall with a slim build and possibly wearing eyeglasses.

In all incidences, the suspect was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, three-quarter-length trousers and white athletic shoes.

“We don’t know if he speaks German or another language …,” Lautenschläger said.

Anyone with information that could help investigators is asked to call the Kaiserslautern police at 0631-369-2620.
