Palm Harbor Man Targeting Women

The Pinellas County sheriff warns parents there’s a serial stalker groping girls and women in Palm Harbor, and he’s getting more aggressive.

He’s hit three times in the past month, all near Alderman Road and Cinnamon Hill Boulevard, not far from Carwise Middle School. Most recently he’s accused of grabbing a 12-year-old girl.

Deputies are putting up fliers at area businesses. They’re asking the public to watch out for a man, 18 to 30 years old, 5-foot-10, and around 170 pounds. Two of the victims describe him with brown, collar-length hair. Friday’s victim says he had shorter, blonder hair. He’s been seen riding a black BMX bike.

The sheriff says in the past month the man has targeted a 16-year-old Palm Harbor University High student and a 41-year-old woman, both had been out running. This past Friday he groped a 12-year-old girl walking home from school.
