“The attacker ran up behind us and smacked our back sides incredibly hard and kept running away. he does not look homeless, he’s young, he’s getting significantly more violent and aggressive each time,” the victim, who wished to remain anonymous, said. “So last night (Thursday) there was another incident where he grabbed another woman’s face and her back side and tried to drag her into a more secluded area so I think he’s building up confidence but I’m not sure what he’s gearing up to do next so it’s just scary he’s on the loose.”
