MLive- Police are searching for a buttocks-toucher who has accosted two women near Lakefront Park in recent days.
The man sneaks up behind women, touches their rear ends and runs away. Police identified a potential suspect, who was interviewed Thursday, Oct. 29, and then released.
"Since the behavior is so alarming, officers have been working diligently to identify the perpetrator," Cadillac Police Chief Todd Golnick said.
The first incident occurred in the morning on Oct. 20 in Lakefront Park.
A woman who was walking alone told police that a man approached her from behind, touched her buttocks and ran away. She had no idea he was in the area until he touched her.
Then, on Monday, Oct. 26, another woman who was walking near the park, by the Chestnut Street boat launch parking area, was touched on the buttocks. She did not see the man approach but told police he ran off in the same direction as the man did in the earlier incident.
Police said the potential suspect interviewed this morning was identified through surveillance and investigation. Golnick did not say if the man was cleared or remained under suspicion.
First of all, once I saw the word "accosted" used to describe a man that is going around touching butts I had no choice but to blog this. Though I think it's pretty disingenuous to use it in regard to butt stuff, unless said butt stuff is forced anal, accosted is a pretty incredible word. A little love tap on the ass isn't enough to say you were accosted, but I do appreciate the word's appearance in a story where no one was really in any actual danger. Isn't too often you get to use it in for a circumstance whether laughter is appropriate, and for that I am forever indebted to the sneaky butt toucher.
Hey ladies, maybe stop going to the police because a guy touched your butt and ran away. Unless he's walking up and getting a handful of cheek then he isn't doing it for pleasure. You don't get sexual gratification out of poking a woman's ass and running away as fast as you can. More than likely it's the thrill of not being caught that really drives him, and nothing feeds that thrill like seeing himself labeled as "the sneaky butt toucher" on the internet. This article alone is probably getting at least 15 more butts touched. Sneaky butt touchers don't touch butts for satisfaction, they touch butts for notoriety. Notoriety they get from ridiculous blog sites such as this one. A bunch of overly sensitive women are doing a disservice to the rest of the female community by going to law enforcement with this. Don't blame the man who is touching butts, blame the butt owners that are making it a big deal. Once people stop looking for the sneaky butt toucher the sneaky butt toucher seizes to exist. That's just how harmless, semi-sexual accostment works.
