A 17-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of grabbing a girl’s buttocks on the Woodside High School campus, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

The alleged sexual battery occurred about 6:45 p.m. Monday, the sheriff’s office said.

The victim reported the suspect, who she did not know and who is not a student at Woodside High, was seen riding a bicycle around the campus at 199 Churchill Ave. for about three hours before the incident, according to the sheriff’s office.

“As the victim and her friend were walking on campus, the suspect rode his bicycle between the two, momentarily slowed down, and grabbed the victim’s buttocks,” the sheriff’s office said.

The victim rode away, while the victim and her friend ran the opposite direction, the sheriff’s office said.

Investigators identified the suspect and arrested him Wednesday night, deputies said. He was not being identified because he is a minor.
