A witness helped Oklahoma City police track down a sexual assault suspect by following his car and getting a tag number.

Police say on August 5, a woman was walking near the stairwell of the Penn Square Mall parking garage when a man approached her. She told police the man reached under her dress, grabbed her, and then ran away.

Another man witnessed what happened. He saw the suspect get into a car, so he followed him until he was able to get a tag number.

Officers used that tag number to identify 42-year-old Alex Altamiramo as the suspect. Police took Altamiramo into custody, and the victim positively identified him.
