A Roseville man was arrested on suspicion of sexual battery and child molestation after an incident that occurred on Friday, August 28th. According to Roseville Police, a middle-school age girl was on her way to school when she was grabbed by the suspect.
The girl was walking alone on the Linda Creek Trail when at about 8:30 a.m., a man who was walking behind her, grabbed her and touched her buttocks. The girl was able to break free from the man and run to Warren T. Eich Middle School, where she immediately reported the incident.
Roseville Police were contacted by school officials and started investigating the incident. A City of Roseville employee provided a tip, which led police to the suspect who was identified as 38 year-old Quin Wilde Mack.
Mack was arrested and taken to Placer County Jail. His bail was set at $30,000. The suspect was also given a notice, which prevents him from using the city’s trail system and all other Roseville park facilities. Mack was listed as a transient in the Roseville area, but also reported his occupation as “clerk”. His booking photo has not been released due to the ongoing investigation.
The Roseville police commended the young girl for her quick actions, including reporting the incident. Police also expressed gratitude to the officials at Eich Middle School and the City of Roseville employee who provided the tip.
Quin Mack’s recorded history with the law goes back to 2008, when he was arrested for a DUI while living in Roseville. He had relocated to Orangevale in 2010, when he was arrested on September 22 for another DUI, along with driving on a suspended license.
Exactly one month later he was in San Diego, now listed as a transient, and arrested there for carjacking, robbery, petty theft, and assault with a deadly weapon likely to cause great bodily injury. After undergoing mental competency evaluations, he was released to custody to complete his sentence in February of 2012. The next year, in December of 2013, he was arrested by Los Angeles Police and charged with vandalism in excess of $5,000 damage. He reported living in Escondido, in San Diego County at that time. After his release, he made his way back to the Roseville area.
