COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Police are searching for a man who grabbed a woman in a public Colorado Springs bathroom while committing sexual acts on himself.

The woman entered an office complex bathroom at 2790 North Academy Boulevard at approximately 8:30 a.m. on July 2 when the man grabbed her. She was able to escape her attacker uninjured after she screamed for help.

The most important feature that may help in identifying the suspect is the “meth marks” or acne that the victim said she saw on his face.

The victim further described the suspect as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s who stands between 6-foot and 6-foot-2 in height. She said he has “scraggly curly,” medium-length light blond hear and was wearing red shorts at the time of the attack.

He was seen fleeing the scene in a white 2007 Hyundai Sonata, a four-door sedan with Colorado license plate number 865TOA. The car was stolen from a Colorado Springs address on the morning of the attack.
