While shaking the victim’s hand, Herrera pulled the victim towards him and hugged her. The victim pulled away from Herrera and Herrera used his body weight to pin the victim against her car, where he attempted to kiss her, wrap his arm around her body and tried to touch her breast. Herrera then placed his hand on the victim’s bare leg and attempted to put his hand up her shorts. The victim was able to break away from Herrera and get into the driver’s seat of her vehicle. Herrera followed the victim and sat on her lap and began stroking her hair telling her everything was okay. Herrera got off of the victim and the victim was able to shut her door and drive away.
