Police are searching for a Bronx man who went on a sexual assault spree on Thursday, groping six women in a six hour period. According to police, the victims ranged in age from 28 to 51, and the assaults took place in the Baychester and Soundview neighborhoods.
The first attack occurred around 6 a.m. Thursday when the assailant ran up behind a 51-year-old woman on a Baychester street and groped her private area through her clothing. Fifteen minutes later, the perp violently grabbed the crotch of a 32-year-old woman from behind; an hour later, he attacked a 29-year-old woman the same manner.
Shortly after 8 a.m., the man assaulted a 31-year-old woman; 15 minutes after that, he attacked a 28-year-old woman. The final attack took place just after noon, when he violently groped a 48-year-old woman in Soundview.
The police got surveillance video (watch it here) of the attacker pacing around near one of the corners where he assaulted a woman. Police say the suspect, who was wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt and grey sweatpants, is a black male in his 20s, about 5-foot-10 inches tall and a thin build.
