PASADENA—Fears of a sexual predator have given homeowners a disturbing reality check in a Pasadena neighborhood.
“I don’t feel safe at all,” said Linda Cox, who’s lived in the area for 45 years. “I feel like I could get out of my car and someone could just grab me and take me and they could do anything.”
Many neighbors are scared because of what happened to a female postal worker who was delivering mail Wednesday afternoon.
According to police, she was assaulted by a man who groped and fondled her. The woman fought back and her attacker eventually ran away.
The incident occurred in the 800 block of Yorkshire Road, about half of a mile from an apartment complex where a similar attack occurred in early October.
In that assault, a man attempted to grope a 10-year-old girl. She also fought back and managed to get away.
Authorities weren’t sure if the incidents were connected. No one has been arrested.
“It’s very disturbing,” said Johnny Garza, who has a teenage daughter. “I don’t like that at all. I don’t feel comfortable that someone is in the neighborhood doing that.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Pasadena police.
