An Hispanic man on a mountain bike who groped a woman jogging on the Mohawk River Trail Sunday morning is wanted by Rome Police.

Lt. James P. Boyer said the woman was jogging on the trail at about 10:30 a.m. when the man rode up behind her and groped her. Boyer said the woman shoved the man away and fled to safety.

The man is described as being in his late 30s, wearing black shorts, a T-shirt and a red baseball cap. The man was about 5-feet, 3-inches tall, with a thin build.

Anyone with information on the bicyclist is asked to call Rome Police at 315-339-7780. Patrolman Ryan P. Crever is investigating. All calls can be kept confidential.
