Grover Beach police are investigating three sex offenses that were reported all within four days of each other in mid-September, a watch commander confirmed on Saturday.

The first sex offense was reported at 12:50 p.m. Sep. 18 on W. Grand Avenue.

The case involves Adult Protective Services, but the Grover Beach PD watch commander would not elaborate as to why the agency is involved, other than to confirm that Adult Protective Services may assist with cases where the victim is elderly or disabled.

Authorities said no arrests had been made in the case and no suspect identified. That investigation is ongoing.

The second sex offense as reported around 9:30 p.m. Sep. 19 on N. 5th Street.

No arrests have been made and no suspects identified, according to the watch commander. The investigation is ongoing.

The third sex offense was reported around 5 a.m. Sep. 21 on W. Grand Avenue.

Authorities said a suspect has been identified but has not been arrested.

“The detective has put a lot of work into investigating that case,” the watch commander said.

Though the first and third offense reportedly occurred on the same street within the same 100 block, the watch commander said the cases are unrelated.

No further information on the cases was released, as they are considered “confidential.”
