Authorities in San Mateo County arrested a man on Saturday suspected of groping women in Millbrae, the sheriff’s office said Sunday.

Two women reported unwarranted physical contact by a man and described the same suspect.

On August 13, a 28-year-old woman was walking on the Spur Trail near Millbrae Avenue when she was groped by an unidentified man. She described him as about 30 years old and 5 feet 7 inches tall.

Another woman, 38, reported walking with her son in the 200 block of Poplar Avenue when a man groped her from behind. The suspect fled when she screamed. She described the suspect as between 20 and 30 years old and 1.65 meters tall.

Both women said the suspect was wearing a black hoodie with white lettering on the back.

The sheriff’s office said the Spur Trail area was flooded with decoys, plainclothes detectives and uniformed patrol deputies trying to locate the suspect.

On Saturday, a community member in San Bruno reported to police that they had seen a suspicious person in San Bruno City Park. Officers arrived and saw a person matching the description of the Millbrae suspect, they said.

Jaime Garcia Mogollan, 40, was arrested with evidence authorities believe links him to the crimes. He was booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility on suspicion of felony sexual battery by restraint and his bail is set at $300,000. His next trial is Monday.

The Sheriff’s Office is concerned that there may be more alleged victims of Mogollan and is urging witnesses or victims to contact them. Anyone with information helpful to this case may call Detective A. Baggetta at 650-363-4192 or email [email protected].
