The Princeton Police Department (PPD) has received a report of a groping incident that occurred near campus on Tuesday, Feb. 26, according to a crime alert on the Department of Public Safety’s (DPS) website.

According to the alert, the incident happened at 9:45 a.m. on Franklin Ave. The victim, a 19-year-old female, reports that while she was approaching Walnut Lane, her buttocks were grabbed from behind.


The alert also says that the victim described the actor as a “Hispanic looking male around 5’ 4”, heavy set with medium skin tone, wearing a black skull cap or watch cap type hat.”

The actor may be driving a white pickup truck, according to the alert, but the make and model are unknown.

“DPS doesn’t have any other information about the incident, which PPD is investigating,” Deputy University Spokesperson Mike Hotchkiss wrote in an email to The Daily Princetonian.

PPD did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
