RIVERSIDE – A 22-year-old Riverside man was arrested on Friday for punching a woman after she rejected his sexual advances last month.
On Sunday, March 12th, the victim and her friends were walking from the 3600 block of Mission Inn Avenue to her car in a parking garage located at 3473 Orange Street in the City of Riverside. A male suspect, later identified as Matthew Seys followed the victim making sexual advances towards her.

Several tips were received by the detectives, leading to the suspect’s identity. On Friday night the Riverside Police Department METRO Team located and arrested Seys.
