The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who they say groped a woman while she was asleep in a hotel room Wednesday night, the agency announced in a Facebook post Thursday.
Authorities say the man entered the hotel room through a ground floor window sometime after 11 p.m. The hotel is in the Cameron Park community in El Dorado County.
The sleeping woman, who was alone in the room, woke up to find the man groping her and immediately began fighting him off, the post says. The man then left the hotel room through the front door, walked down a hallway and drove away in a white SUV.
Hotel security cameras filmed him as he left the hotel. Photographs of that footage were included in the Sheriff's Office Facebook post about the incident.
