SAN LEANDRO -- A 23-year-old man on a bicycle who allegedly groped a woman on a San Leandro street late Monday morning has been arrested on suspicion of sexual battery.

Hayward resident Naser Ahmid Hatim was nabbed by officers shortly after the 10:30 a.m. incident in the 14400 block of Washington Avenue, Lt. Randy Brandt said.

The woman told police she was walking along Washington Avenue when a man rode up to her on a bicycle, fondled her a few times and then fled the area.

The woman immediately dialed 911, Brandt said, and police officers located the suspect riding his bicycle on Halcyon Drive.

The suspect was identified by the woman as the man who allegedly groped her, and he was arrested and booked into Santa Rita Jail.

On Tuesday, jail records show Hatim had posted bail.
