City police are looking for a bald, white male in his 20’s who wore a blue and white checkered shirt when he allegedly groped a woman inside the Hannaford Supermarket at 777 Rogers Street tonight about 9:45 p.m.
Police say the man walked up behind a 25-year-old woman in the store, groped her, and then ran from the building.
About two minutes ago, police put out a stop-and-hold for the guy and a dark-colored Dodge Intrepid that he drove away in. He is now wanted for indecent assault and battery.
I’ll try to get a more detailed description of him as soon as the investigating officer files his report.
The man is pictured in store surveillance video, so if he reads this let me suggest to him that he go ahead and turn himself in. I’ll be publishing his photograph if police decide to make it available.
Anyone with information on who or where this man might be is asked to call Lowell police at 978-937-3200 or Crimestoppers at 978-459-TIPS (8477). Information can also be sent to police via Text-a-Tip, by texting TIP411 (847411) with the subject “LPDTIP.” Tipsters can remain anonymous, but can receive up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
