A Tyler man has been arrested for public lewdness after allegedly groping a woman on the Rose Rudman Trail Thursday afternoon.
The incident happened at 1:45 pm Thursday, when the woman was grabbed and fondled from behind by a man in the park as she was pushing her child's stroller. The woman screamed, drawing the attention of others in the park, who followed the man and called police.
The man, later identified as Jacob Bobbitt, 19, was later pulled over on Rhones Quarter Road, where he was arrested for public lewdness. He remains in the Smith County Jail.
Bobbit was arrested in September on the same charge after he allegedly fondled a woman in a Tyler Walmart.
