Milwaukee man charged with groping joggers

A Milwaukee man has been charged with groping women on the city’s trails. Duane Fish is charged with three counts of fourth-degree sexual assault for three incidents.

On Oct 29, the 41-year-old is accused of riding his bike in the opposite direction of two women joggers and saying “Oh, Spandex.” A few minutes later he allegedly rode up from behind, grabbing the buttocks and grown of one of the women.

On Nov. 14, Fish allegedly grabbed a woman around the waist and rubbed his face against her vaginal area. Last Saturday, a third woman was jogging when a man on bike rode up behind her and grabbed her buttocks before riding away. She identified Fish from police photos later that day.

Police say fish admitted to at least two of the incidents and blamed alcohol use. If convicted he faces up to nine months behind bars and a $10,000 fine.
