TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — A man approached a woman as she was walking her dog on Sunday around 5:30 p.m. near Oldfather and Massingale road.

He then made suggestive comments before reaching out and touching her inappropriately.

She confronted the suspect and took pictures of him before he ran away on foot.

Police described him as a white man in his late 30s, heavy built, stands about six feet tall, and has light brown/blonde hair. He was last seen wearing a black long sleeve shirt with a multi-color design on the front and white lettering on the sleeve. His left ear is pierced and has a tattoo on the inside of his right forearm that has a flower as part of the design.

PCSD asked the public to help identify the suspect on Wednesday.

On April 14, the suspect turned himself in at the Pima County Sheriff's Foothill substation and made a statement to detectives.

The investigation remains ongoing and PCSD is appreciative of the public's assistance in sharing the suspects description, which resulted in several tips.

The investigation is ongoing.
