Roseville Police Investigating Bike Trail Incident‏

The Roseville Police Department is investigating a report of a stranger grabbing a 13-year-old girl on the Miner's Ravine bike trail, near Roseville Parkway and Orvietto Drive. The girl ran away and was not injured.

At about 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, December 2, the girl was walking home from Olympus Junior High School along the bike trail. As she approached the area of Roseville Parkway and Orvietto Drive, she said that an unknown male came up behind her and grabbed at her backpack and hair, causing her to fall backwards. She ran home, and the Roseville Police Department was notified. The girl was very frightened, but was not otherwise injured.

A large number of police officers responded to the area and searched the trail and the surrounding area, but were unable to locate the suspect.

The suspect was described as a tall white male, between 6'0" and 6'6" tall. He wore a black baseball cap over a black bandana, a red hooded sweatshirt, and possibly blue sweatpants. He possibly had brown hair.

Anyone who may have seen this individual, or has any other information about this incident is asked to call the Roseville Police Department at (916)774-5070.
