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.
