The NYPD is looking for a man they say harassed and followed an 11-year-old boy at a Bushwick L/M train station on Tuesday morning.
Police say that the young victim was at the Myrtle/Wyckoff Avenue subway station around 8:30 a.m. yesterday when a man grabbed him by the arm, keeping him from boarding a Queens-bound M train. The man then allegedly told the child he was going to "get" him, then followed the boy around the station as he tried to escape. You can see video of the suspect below:
The NYPD said that the boy eventually ended up on the station's L train platform, where he found a good Samaritan who called police. The suspect, meanwhile, fled on a Queens-bound M train.
Cops say the suspect is male, in his 30s, 5'10"; last seen wearing black shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers.
