PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – An unidentified man who allegedly groped a teenager’s breasts at a Southeast Portland bus stop remains at large, police said.
Around 8:45 a.m. Monday, the 15-year-old girl was waiting at the corner of Cesar E. Chavez and Powell Boulevard when the man walked toward her and spoke in sexually explicit terms, officials said. Then he grabbed the girl and groped her breasts.
The girl screamed and tried but was not able to get away, police said. Then someone driving by noticed the girl was in distress, stopped and helped her escape before driving her to where she wanted to go.
