Beverly Hills police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of an attempted sexual assault early Sunday morning in Beverly Hills.
At around 3:45 a.m. on Sunday morning, surveillance cameras captured a man on a bicycle following a woman who was walking near Wilshire Boulevard at Merv Griffin Way.

Police are describing the male suspect as a hispanic man in his 30s with black hair in a ponytail, standing around 5-foot-6 with facial hair and wearing a dark green shirt. His bicycle is described as single speed and red.
Anyone with information on Sunday’s incident is asked to contact the BHPD detectives at 310-285-2158.
