Sentencing was postponed Friday to Nov. 14 for Dajamah Blevins, who sexually assaulted a teenage girl as they rode a bus through National City.
Blevins, 27, was convicted in August of misdemeanor battery and child molestation and faces a year and six months in jail.
The 17-year-old victim told investigators the perpetrator boarded the MTS vehicle at a bus stop on 24th Street, then sat next to her and groped her.
When the girl tried to move away, Blevins blocked her way and continued assaulting her, asking her age and telling her he was 24, said NCPD Sgt. Alex Hernandez.
After the bus stopped at 30th Street and Highland Avenue, the victim reported the crime to the driver, who chased Blevins off the bus.
A security camera captured images of the suspect, and police distributed them via San Diego County Crime Stoppers fliers.
Blevins was arrested June 3 after a Metropolitan Transit System security officer recognized him as matching the description of the suspect in the May 28 sexual assault, according to National City police.
