After the assault the suspect walked away and the victim contacted the police. The suspect was located and the victim positively identified him.

Crime Prevention Tip:

Quick reporting led to the arrest of this suspect. The suspect during the investigation kept telling the officers that what he did was stupid after the officers explained to him why he was stopped. He was even shocked that he was being arrested for his actions. In the women's self defense class (RAD) there is a section that educates the students in what a predator is looking for.
