A San Mateo man who previously pleaded no contest to two felonies for attacking multiple woman in separate incidents on the Foster City Pedway last summer was sentenced Friday to 16 months prison time, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Bryan Kennis Lopez-Cruz, 19, pleaded no contest to attempted robbery and sexual battery and faced a maximum two years in prison. He has 506 days credit and was released Friday on parole, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
On July 30, 2019, Lopez-Cruz displayed a cellphone with the message “Shut up or you will die” to a 20-year-old woman whose bicycle he blocked along the Foster City Pedway, prosecutors said.
On Aug. 31, 2019, Lopez-Cruz attacked a 19-year-old victim riding her bicycle on the same pedway. Two days later, he attacked a 23-year-old at the same location. He used his bicycle to knock the woman into the bushes, punched her in the face, grabbed her wrists and, while holding her down, grabbed her buttocks and genital area through her clothing, prosecutors said.
