    Have a cellphone handy when you’re on the trail, and try to be cognizant of cross streets, so you can help ACPD identify where you are. There’s enough people around both of these areas that there’s no reason we can’t catch this asshole if he tries it again.

  • South Arlington

    Bad week for crime ridden North Arlington.

    • Courthouse Res

      Yeah it’s all the people coming from South Arlington to commit the crimes!

      • el fat kid

        it’s all the Cherrydale thugs creepin’.

    • Bringmetheyuppies

      Yup always more crime in the north. Seems folks from md and dc like it better.

  • LP

    Wow – 2 Mercedes’ stolen from American Service Center, that’s impressive.

    • Jenga

      I was thinking the same when I read the address.

      Were they stolen with a flatbed? I thought MB’s had tamper proof ignition systems.

    When riding my bike down the trails, I admit the juvenile side in me when seeing a nice shapely pair of buttocks jiggling in spandex has wanted to reach down and give them a good slap.

    Glad to see I’m not the only one that thinks that way, but sad to see that some actually follow through.

    • Bringmetheyuppies

      well get some help lest u end up in the crime report mr peeg.

    • mehoo

      Nothing juvenile about wanting to – quite adult, in fact. Actually doing it is juvenile.

  • imissTX

    I don’t condone the butt-grabbing, but as a guy, if a lady grabbed my butt while riding by on a bike it wouldn’t be something to report to the police… just something to report to my buddies over a beer.

    • PikeHoo

      The only place that would ever happen to a dude is in Penthouse Forum.

  • Jorge

    Kevin Love, 46…he sounds like he is a resident from S. Arlington.

    • mehoo

      Go back to el Salvador, Jorge! 😉

  • Golden Silence

    A crime report mentions women being groped and all you can do is reply with sexist comments about how you’re tempted to grope and wouldn’t mind if a woman groped you. Man, you’re a bunch of sick fools.

    And the classist “They came from South Arlington!” comments and racist “Go back to El Salvador!” comments about the criminals have me shaking my head. Does it matter where they came from? Damn. Criminal is criminal.

    You people can easily sit and judge from the anonymity from your computers but you wouldn’t have the guts to act like this to someone’s face. This is a community of passive-aggressive prejudiced cowards.

  • jessie

    My thoughts exactly Golden Silence.

    You should probably know that the bike-by-butt grabber was just arrested. He pulled the same thing on my wife a few days ago while walking our dog. When he turned around for another pass, she shouted at him and it scared him off. We called the cops when she got home. They took a statement but soon got a call that he had done it again, this time with another witness who reported where the guy went.

    From the time my wife was assaulted to the time the guy was in cuffs: about an hour. I think this is a real credit to watchful neighbors and ACPD.

    It’s a pretty sad situation all the way around. It turns out he’s 15 and doesn’t have full mental function, more like that of a 10 year old. And he’s been doing this for months.
