AUSTIN -- A man was arrested Wednesday for a groping incident that occurred at the Target on Research Boulevard last Thursday.

Siji Moreno, 21, has been charged with assault with injury.

APD said Moreno lifted the victim's skirt, touched her inappropriately and fled the scene toward the parking lot where he drove away in a dark colored car.
According to an APD press release, Moreno is a person of interest in numerous other cases involving assault by contact of a sexual nature.

Moreno was currently on probation for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and manslaughter. His probation has been revoked due to the new charge filed against him in the Target incident.

Moreno is currently being held at the Travis County jail with no bond.

APD Region II detectives are asking anyone that may be a victim or may have information regarding these incidents to call 512-974-8265.
