NYPD Searching For Man Caught On Video Groping Female Pedestrian

Police are looking for a person accused of three forcible touching incidents on the same day. In security camera footage provided by the NYPD, the man can be seen groping a female passerby—before he allegedly rubbed himself on her.

The NYPD says all incidents took place on May 11th, 2018, in the Bronx's 42nd Precinct.

The first occurred around 11:10 p.m., in front of 3822 Third Avenue, where, police say, "the individual grabbed the 25-year-old female victim's buttock as she walked past him. The individual then followed the victim around the corner, pulled her towards him and rubbed himself on her. When the victim shoved him away, he ran into Crotona Park."

Then, 20 minutes later, the suspect allegedly "approached the 14-year-old female victim and grabbed her crotch over her clothing" before fleeing south on Franklin Avenue.

At 11:40 p.m., in front of 1325 Franklin Avenue, "the individual approached the 19-year-old female victim and grabbed her crotch over her clothing" before fleeing, according to the NYPD.

The suspect is described as being 20-25 years old and 5'7". He was last seen wearing a black jacket, red camouflage pants and black and white sneakers.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
