The subject then took off his shorts and asked for a drink of water.

A woman lead the suspect downstairs and was groped by the subject in the process. While the subject was downstairs the woman went next door asking for help from another family member.

The victim stated that while she was next door the subject appeared to be masturbating in the driveway.
