Detectives looking for man accused of throwing his bodily fluids on store clerk

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The Tulare County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man accused of throwing his bodily fluids on a store clerk.

Deputies say the incident happened on September 1 when 48-year-old Abel Torres Medero followed the victim into a store near Avenue 412 and Road 128 in Orosi.

According to investigators, once in the store, Medero placed his hand in his pants and fondled himself. He then threw bodily fluids at the victim before running out of the store.
