WASHINGTON (AP) - Metro police say they’ve arrested a man accused of groping a woman at the L’Enfant Plaza station in downtown Washington.

Police say 18-year-old Jose Francisco Pleitez of Lanham, Maryland, grabbed a woman’s buttocks on a platform at the station on Wednesday night.

Police say the woman chased Pleitez and officers joined the chase before catching him. He’s been charged with misdemeanor sexual abuse.

Police say they’re looking into the possibility that Pleitez has abused other victims.

Maryland court records show Pleitez is facing charges including assault, theft and malicious destruction of property. Records show he was arrested on Saturday and released after posting bond on Wednesday - the same day as the groping on Metro.
