Written by Christina Kemp on January 24, 2014

Salem, Ore. – Salem Police want your help to find a serial groper.

The guy is young, slim and wears a black hoody. But Salem police have released a video of an attack and they hope someone recognizes him.

The video shows the guy come up behind Emma Vlossak when her back is turned. He grabs her and throws her to the ground. With 14 attacks in the area since October some women are taking extra precautions.

“I’m going to be more aware for sure. And be more cautious of where I’m parking. Like more in the light and less in the dark areas where it’s more likely to happen.”

There is a lot you can do to stay safe. Cops say to keep your head up, look people in the eye, and know your surroundings.
