    The suspect allegedly approached the victims as they were walking. He either ran up behind the victim or grabbed the victims, but in two cases the suspect pushed the women to the ground.

    The suspect did not speak to any of the victims and ran away after the attack. 

    The suspect is described as a male between ages 25 to 30.  He is between 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall, with a thin to medium build.  He is clean shaven.  In some of the cases, he was described as wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and dark pants. In the later cases, he wore a blue button front shirt and black slacks.  Because of the time and distance between the incidents, police believe the man may have used a car.

    Anyone with information concerning these batteries is asked to contact the San Diego Police Department’s Eastern Division at 858-495-7900 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
