(WXYZ) — The Plymouth Police Department said it has arrested a 15-year-old who they say attempted to sexually assault a woman in public restrooms on October 30.

Police say the suspect hid in the Comfort Station bathrooms in downtown Plymouth at 736 Penniman Avenue. When a woman went into the bathroom around 7 p.m. and exited her stall, police say that’s when she was attacked by the suspect who tried to sexually assault her.

According to police, the victim fought the suspect off and he ran out of the bathroom door toward Kellogg Park and then toward Union Street.
