COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – Police are looking for a man accused of groping a woman and exposing himself on the Hinkson Creek Trail in Columbia.

The University of Missouri police department said in a release that a woman told officers she had been running on the trail Sunday morning when a man in his early 20s rode past her on a bicycle several times. Police said he grabbed the woman near the Capen Park bridge, but she was able to get away. The release said suspect rode past her again and exposed himself to her at another bridge.

The woman ran to an emergency phone and contacted university police.

Police describe the suspect as about 6 feet tall, 160 pounds and either Hispanic or black. They say he was wearing a light-colored t-shirt, cargo shorts, tennis shoes and a baseball cap.
