Hollywood, FL (November 30, 2018) – In Hollywood, a man was charged with aggravated stalking, sexual battery, burglary and more for harassing a 16-year old teenage girl as she was walking home from school this week on Dewey Street.
The young girl was almost home when she encountered a man that has identified as 23-year-old Matthew James Walker who approached her on a bicycle. He grabbed at her and put his hand up her skirt and touched her on the buttock. She managed to struggle away from him and run inside her house. When Walker tried to gain entry to her home, she kicked him in the private area and slammed the door on him. She immediately contacted authorities. As Walker rode away on his bike, he told her he would be returning. Walker was eventually arrested and booked on several charges including the sexual battery of a victim under the age of 12 and aggravated stalking.
