Oklahoma Vice: In search of Southeast Side Groper

Police are searching for a man with an afro who allegedly groped and exposed himself to several women in Southeast Oklahoma City.

He allegedly fondled a mail carrier who was delivering letters at a southeast side apartment complex in June. Oklahoma Vice has dubbed this unknown man "the Southeast Side Groper."

The man allegedly grabbed the mail carrier's buttocks and one of her breasts before running off through the apartment complex, according to a police report. 

"I can't help it, you are just too fine," the man allegedly said before running away. 

Another woman reported a similar-looking man in August who grabbed her around the waist at a different nearby apartment complex. She reported the man began to move "his torso back and forth in a sexual manner" after grabbing her. 

The same day, another woman nearby reported a strange man began following her as she walked home. The man allegedly slapped her on the buttocks before running away.  

Other incidents have been reported in the area of a man with an afro exposing and fondling himself.

Most of the sightings have been centered around the Sunnyview Apartments near SE 44 and Sunnylane Road.  Police canvassed the apartment complex in August in hopes of gathering more information about the man. 

The man is described as black with sandy brown hair, in his early 20s and about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 150 pounds.

Here's where the Southeast Side Groper has been spotted:
