Man Dressed As A Woman Gropes Teen In Public Library

An Ohio man groped a teenage girl in a public library while dressed as a woman, police say.

Police in Mentor, Ohio, say a man entered the Mentor Public Library dressed as a woman and approached a 14-year-old girl, The Plain Dealer reports.

The man struck up an "unusual conversation" with the girl, telling her he was dressed as a woman as a joke, according to Mentor police Lt. Dan Molnar, WJW reports.

After the conversation, the man inappropriately touched the girl and left the library.

Mentor Police released surveillance footage showing the man entering the library, though glare from the sun makes it difficult to make out his face.

The girl was not harmed in the incident, according to The Plain Dealer.

Anybody with information about the suspect is asked to contact Mentor Police at 440-974-5760.
