Authorities are seeking help identifying a man they say groped at least two teenage boys in the New Holland area.

Gainesville Police said the incidents happened between 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

“The suspect approached the male subjects, asked random questions and physically touched them in the groin area,” Gainesville Police wrote in a news release.

Police said the white man was between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches tall and between 220 and 240 pounds with a gray “scruffy” beard. His age is believed to be between 40 and 50.
