Man on bike sought for groping woman near Cal State Northridge campus

NORTHRIDGE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Students at Cal State Northridge are being warned about a man who is being sought by police for groping a woman near campus.

The university Department of Police Services released a photo of a man in a black hooded sweatshirt riding a bike and said the incident happened around 5 p.m. near Lassen Street and Zelzah Avenue.
