A man who was arrested after allegedly sexually battering a woman in the dressing room of a mall store was released from jail Friday.
At about 12:45 p.m. Thursday, Temecula police responded to a report that a woman in her early 40s was in the dressing room of Hollister at The Promenade when a man entered her stall and grabbed her in a sexual manner as she undressed, police said in a news release.
"After being grabbed, the victim screamed and the suspect fled the store into the mall," said Temecula police Sgt. Decker. "Witnesses called 911 and officers...responded to the area within minutes."
The suspect, later identified as 57-year-old Leonard Rudzinski, was located and positively identified by witnesses, according to the sergeant.
Rudzinski was arrested and booked into Southwest Detention Center on suspicion of misdemeanor sexual battery. Jail records show he was released from custody Friday morning.
The victim was not injured during the incident, police said.
Anyone with additional information was encouraged to call the Temecula Police Department at 951-696-3000.
