HILLSBOROUGH, N.J. (1010 WINS) -- Officials announced an investigation into an alleged groping that occurred inside a New Jersey residence last week.

According to Somerset County Acting Prosecutor Annmarie Taggart on Thursday, April 14, at approximately 10:18 p.m., Hillsborough Township Police received a 911 call reporting a sexual offense that occurred in the area of Andria Avenue.

Upon arrival, detectives met with a woman who reported being groped by an unknown man while taking a shower in her residence in the area of Andria Avenue, Taggart said.

The woman reported that while showering, the suspect entered the shower naked and grabbed her from behind.

The victim was able to fight off the suspect, who fled the bathroom, exiting the residence possibly through a screen door, officials said.

The victim was not injured in this incident.

She described the suspect as a Caucasian male, approximately 18 to 24-year-old with a thin build, short dark-colored hair, and no facial or body hair.

She was able to provide a composite sketch to the New Jersey State Police Forensic Imaging Unit of the alleged actor.

Officials urge the public to contact authorities if they recognize the suspect and to not approach or attempt to apprehend him.
