Detectives with the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office are looking for a man suspected of committing lewd acts while in a store in Orosi, deputies said in a news release.
Investigators said Abel Torres Medero, 48, allegedly followed someone into and around the store on Sept. 1. Then he put his hand down his own pants and fondled himself. He then threw “bodily fluids” at the victim before running out of the store, according to the release.
Medero did not know the victims and the incident appears to have been random.
Deputies said Medero also has an arrest warrant for a 2016 incident in Tulare. Anyone with information on Medero’s possible whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Nevarez or Sgt. Kennedy at 559-733-6218. To remain anonymous, contact email@example.com or send a text or voicemail to 559-725-4194.
