One of them recounts having felt a person grab her, pull her from the back while she was putting her groceries in the trunk of her car on January 31. The attacker then tries to touch her buttocks. It is the victim’s brother, witness to the assault, who sets out in pursuit of this short, bald, bearded and sporty-looking man. He manages to immobilize it. Once there, the investigators make the connection with other files with a similar operating mode. Each time, the report made by the victims describes the same man.
