Chilliwack RCMP are looking for help identifying a man seen on home security footage groping a girl on the street last week.

The video footage posted on YouTube shows two young women walking north on the east side of Williams near Chilliwack Secondary School when a man wearing a backwards baseball hat, a blue shirt and riding a red bike comes up behind the girls and is seen to slap or grab the buttocks of one of them.

The incident happened at around 12:15 on Sept. 16 and was captured on security cameras by the resident at the corner of Williams Street and Reece Avenue.

Rob Iezzi’s videos from his security cameras at his house have become somewhat famous in Chilliwack. Iezzi’s videos of odd, illegal and dangerous activity posted on YouTube have been shared widely over the years.
