Hartford Police Looking For Bus Groper

Hartford police are looking for Jesus Ayala, 58, for groping girls while riding the Connecticut Transit Buses.

He allegedly touched, rubbed and groped young girls on several different bus routes between December and January and two of the girls have been identified, both between the ages of 16 and 18.

He previously confessed to Hartford police, but disappeared before arrest warrants were secured. The warrants charge him with fourth-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct in both cases.

Ayala was living in East Hartford, but could also be in the New York area. Similar crimes are believed to have occurred in Manchester.
