A Bolingbrook man was arrested Saturday for allegedly hugging and groping multiple women.

About 4:55 p.m. Saturday, officers received a report of an unknown man hugging a woman, Bolingbrook Police Lt. Anthony Columbus said.

Officers found the man in the area and identified him as Bismark Opare, 24, of the 500 block of Preston Drive in Bolingbrook.

While officers were on the scene with Opare, they received another complaint from a female victim who was grabbed in the 1100 block of West Boughton in Bolingbrook. The offender in that case was also positively identified as Opare.

Opare was arrested and booked into the Will County jail just before midnight Saturday on a charge of aggravated battery.
