UPDATE: Man Follows, Pinches Woman in Concord Parking Lot

June 3, 2014 12:06 pm · 75 comments

A man fondled a woman in a parking lot in Concord on Monday afternoon, then ran away, police said.

The suspect allegedly followed the 48-year-old victim from Sunset Avenue to the CVS store on Clayton Road while talking on his cellphone, Concord police said.

The victim heard the suspect say, “I got one,” into his phone, police said.

The victim then made a purchase at the store and exited to the parking lot, where the suspect followed her, according to police.

The suspect then pinched the woman’s buttocks, then said “jackass” and fled the area, police said.

The suspect, who remains at large, was described as a black man around 20 years old. He is about 6 feet tall, 175 pounds and is clean-shaven with short black faded hair. He was last seen wearing a peach polo shirt and dark khaki pants.

Am waiting for one of these immature wimps to pick on a female trained in self defense. Nice body slam face first should do the trick.

more importantly, I hope no one said anything to offend the criminal, because that’d be a REAL crime. Right, lefties?

The result of the liberal June 3, 2014 at 12:40 PM

society we find ourselves enveloped in today. Bleeding hearts can’t understand how all this can happen, have no idea how to resolve the problem they created and stand in the shadows wringing their hands in fear.

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 3, 2014 at 12:42 PM

I hope these kinds of actions dont prevent us from embracing our section 8 community, and the rich diversity they bring us.

Tom June 3, 2014 at 12:47 PM

I was in a fraternity a long time ago, and I can honestly say I don’t think this is “frat related.”

Men that do this are perverts.

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 3, 2014 at 12:47 PM

If she was an obama voter, I have no issues with this.

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 3, 2014 at 12:54 PM

frats are associated with schools of higher learning…and the perp is, well…put two and two together. No, this wasnt frat related.

Mike June 3, 2014 at 12:57 PM

You goddamned right-wingers… How the hell is this story about being politically left or right?

I’m a liberal… does that mean you think I condone what this stupid kid did? (20-year old “kid” – no maturity.) Do you think I’d defend him? You think that this “black man” did this because he was black or that, because he was black, he must be “section 8”? How racist can you get!?

Okay, let’s say he is poor – he is “section 8″… does that mean that he is indicative of all, most or even a large portion of the “section 8” community? Do you think stupid rich kids never do stuff like this? Do white kids never do stupid crap like this? Is that how you view the world?

God, I can’t stand you hardcore republicans on this website… everything is about “those damned liberals”! Shut up and go soak in another Fox News bath.

I agree with #3, all fun and games until you pinch the wrong woman and end up with broken nose.

@Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire (which I highly doubt)

So sexual battery is okay as long as the woman doesn’t agree with your political views??

Get a life.

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 3, 2014 at 1:15 PM

Mike is offended. I feel bad now. Mike, what can we do to help your hurt feelings?

Anon2you June 3, 2014 at 1:16 PM

Sounds like a joke to me, but in today’s world it gets classified as a “fondling” and a sex crime. Before you start blasting me, I get it. No woman (or anyone) should be touched without their consent, especially in certain areas, buttocks included, I know…but again this sounds like some sort of prank…
It reminds me of the time I got in the elevator with a large breasted woman who was wearing a very revealing top. I couldn’t help but stare at her voluptuous breasts, and while in a sort of trance I heard her lovely voice say, “Please press 1” so I did…I woke up in the ER several hours later…

@Mike #11 – Word. I like to think of these morons as spineless trolls however. Notice they’re posting in the space where they don’t have to use their real name. I love the Internet and the balls these trolls grow when behind a screen. It’s cute.

TOB June 3, 2014 at 1:36 PM

Whether it’s the classroom class clown or trolls you will always have smart asses try to get attention or a rise out of someone. Claycord is no different.

Simple really. If you have thin skin you shouldn’t be in the internet because you take it personal and feel they are attacking you when they have no clue who “YOU” really are. You need thick skin if you want to participate in any forum behind a computer. When one person is suckered into responding, you encourage more of what you dislike.

Just because the real world provides you protections to your sensitivity (more and more so these days can’t even have an opinion), internet does not and can not be policed. Most pay attention only to meaningful posts and learn to ignore the off subject troll posts.

Really should be a warning label on every Internet device. DO NOT USE IF INSECURE OR EASILY OFFENDED. If we have to tell people Gas is flammable perhaps it’s time to warn people about the internet. 😉

Smart,Goodlooking&Debonaire June 3, 2014 at 1:37 PM

this site really needs to improve the time it takes to post comments.

What is really funny is when June 3, 2014 at 1:41 PM

someone makes a fairly generalized statement, using a broad descriptive brush, and someone takes it personally.

Guess someone hit to close to home, hey Mikey?

just a concordian June 3, 2014 at 1:44 PM

So she sees him following her in the street. Doesn’t bat an eye and goes inside. Could it be he also followed her in the store? Or if not, he was outside, and she sees him, and he follows her again. I’m sorry, at which point during this entire scene, I imagine about 5-10 minutes or so, did she feel comfortable with this guy following her?

I’m not defending what this creep did. I am attacking the common sense of this stupid woman who allowed herself to be followed and assgrabbed. No, she was not asking for it. But she didn’t do anything to stop it either.

Idiocracy June 3, 2014 at 1:44 PM

Hello Mike and good grief im sure your happy about AB109. Im not a repub but I do like to unmask the ugly beast that is the left. Either way I’m sure your very happy how CA uses our tax money, are you employed? Maybe your in a “Union” ?

jerk June 3, 2014 at 1:46 PM

I saw this guy on the sidewalk on Sunset Ave. when drove by yesterday. I remember thinking that he looked out of place and dressed funny. Also, Funny joke, #15.

April June 3, 2014 at 1:51 PM

Thank you Mike for standing up and saying something. I used to enjoy reading Claycord and the comments section, but now it seems that every single article is accompanied by a bunch of racist bigoted comments that make me despair for humanity. If this was a news site for some town in the Deep South, I wouldn’t be so surprised. But here we are in the Bay Area, one of the most diverse and tolerant parts of the country, and still the comments overflow with hatred and racism and mocking and blaming the poor.

Atticus Thraxx June 3, 2014 at 1:52 PM

I’m not buying the story. Sounds made up.

Subterfuge June 3, 2014 at 1:59 PM

The suspect ran away. Why do they always run away?

Oh, the undiversity!

Oh, the intolerance!

The horror, the horror!

Tom June 3, 2014 at 2:19 PM

I don’t believe this woman made it up. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with walking behind CVS in the afternoon.

Unfortunately, perverts exists. If she was making it up, I doubt he’d be wearing a “peach polo shirt and khakis.” Blue jeans, white t-shirt and baseball cap, maybe.

This guy is out there, and he needs to be caught.

Enfield303 June 3, 2014 at 2:23 PM

Come on guys, take it to the political thread. They will play with you all day there.

Though it does sound like a dare or a prank, it’s only one step away from tuning into a sucker punch attack that’s infecting the country. I hope he gets caught.

PO'd June 3, 2014 at 3:17 PM

The only answer is to steer clear of downtown Cancard if possible. If it isn’t possible, keep your head on a swivel.
Mike@#11- you may think it’s right wingers picking on the Liberals, but there is a 90% chance of the perp being a liberal Dem (that is if he can vote) as that is the demographic of African-Americans. You can’t blame FOX News as they don’t know about this incident.
This guy needs to get busted before someone gets hurt-and not likely the perp.Of course he’ll be out sooner than later.(AB109 that are Democratic assembly person and state senator voted for).

Can’t we all just get along? And all gang up on the idiot going around pinching women’s rears as part of some messed up game?

Also, re: frats, just because they are associated with higher learning doesn’t mean anything. Some of the most amoral, dumb decisions I have seen made were by people who were associated with higher learning. Frats are famous for parties with heavy drinking- when did that ever generate intelligent, moral behavior?

@ Too Much—37

I never said frat boys didn’t drink and do stupid things. All young people do stupid things, especially males. It’s part of being young.

I said frat boys didn’t commit sex offenses as part of “frat life.” I don’t remember any pedophiles, gropers.

I’m going to go out on a limb. I really don’t think this guy was ever in a fraternity.


Really June 3, 2014 at 5:43 PM

Who ever calls this Sexual Battery, is everything that’s wrong with America today. Guy was messing around and pinched her Ass. Big whuppidy Do, try calling that Sexual Battery to the family in India where those to girls were gang raped and hung from a tree.

Mike June 3, 2014 at 6:06 PM

Yes, I’m aware that these idiots are just trolling, but, do you know what bugs me even more? No one calling them out on their BS. I just had to smack SM&D and his ilk down for a minute. I wasn’t “hurt” over it – I’m not “shocked” or “offended”… I’m just so effing OVER IT. Just thought I’d push back for once…

Look, I live in Concord… in a pretty ghetto neighborhood. I’m about as white as they come. I’m not unemployed – I’m self-employed, running my own business, freelancing as a video producer and editor – and I’m not in a union. I just have compassion in general for my fellow man. IN GENERAL. But when it comes to jack-holes like these trolls, I just feel like we need to tell them to shut up more often. Just because they have the freedom of speech, it doesn’t mean they’re not idiots when they speak.

That’s probably the last they’ll hear from me on the topic for a while… as I do have more important ways to waste my time online. But, to those tea-bagging, war-mongering, racist, bigoted, Cheney-loving right-wingers, I’ll reiterate the bottom line here;

This incident – the guy pinching a woman and running away – has NOTHING to do with my politics or your politics. It is not an epidemic sweeping through the slums. It is not a symptom of socialist government “hand-outs” or of section 8 housing. It is not a black or white issue – I very much doubt you would find any studies to conclude that, predominantly, only young black males pinch women in public and run away. That was just one weirdo being weird. Happens every day in any city in America and in many other countries. To try to politicize it shows your obsession with demonizing “the other side” – with your “us versus them” mentality. You believe you’ve got it all right and everyone who disagrees with you is wrong. And the worst part about it all? You never shut up about how stupid you are. You keep spouting off proudly about your pride in your ignorance and your love of your guns. Shut up, already! We don’t care! You’re free to be an idiot and an a-hole, but guess what… WE DON’T CARE! You are NOT a big deal to ANYONE.

A guy who doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things and is aware of it and wishes you would figure out the same.

what the wingies don’t get is that eventually, Claycord will end because people are getting tired of their comments.

Excuse me, but what neighborhood is NRA going to? And exactly what good is he? What crime has he stopped? Or are these trips in his mind alone.

Also the complainers who act like they have so much and everyone else is ghetto are liars. If they really felt this way they would have moved by now, LOL. Or maybe they don’t have anything, it’s just in their head too.

Always Right June 3, 2014 at 9:49 PM

@Mike – I do agree with you this issue (butt pinching) probably has no political connection.

What the posters you vilify are expressing is their general outrage over the level of crime in our city and state, which is above the national average.

Although this particular crime may have no political connection, we really don’t know that for sure. Was the perp a first offender? If he is a repeat offender and he is on the streets because of budget cuts to prisons (a political issue) then the posters you love to hate may actually be correct.

Yes it sounds like a broken record, but the truth is the truth: the California . Democratic party has gone soft on crime. Jails and prisons are underfunded and over crowded. Police salaries are the highest in the nation so we cities can’t afford to hire enough of them, etc. etc.

@Libby Rahl – you are mistaken. The politics thread exists, according to The Mayor, to keep politics off the “Whatever thread”. There is no prohibition against political posts ( as silly as some of them are) from other threads.

Always Right June 4, 2014 at 8:19 AM

Post @67 – republicans don’t need to raise taxes in order to fund public safety. There is plenty of fat in the existing state budget which can be cut in order to improve safety, and republicans wouldn’t be driving good businesses out of California. Just imagine a California economy with stronger growth and lower unemployment than the rest of the country – there would be plenty of revenue to pay for more police, jails, etc.

Like safe streets, clean streets, maintained streets? Vote republican. Like thugs and vagrants wandering the streets? Like trashy homes and businesses? Like potholes and flat tires? Vote Democrat.
