Police have released video of a man wanted for public lewdness in Brooklyn. The security camera video, captured last month, shows the man walking along a sidewalk completely naked.
Cops say they received a report at 6 a.m. on August 12th about a male "seen naked walking on a public sidewalk in the vicinity of East 52 Street, between Avenue J and Avenue I" in the Flatlands section of Brooklyn.
The suspect is described as being approximately 25-35 years old and 5'6"-5'9".
On August 29th, at East 55th Street and Avenue I, a 23-year-old woman was nearly raped by a naked man who threw her to the ground and groped her. The woman was able to get away, and her attacker reportedly said, "Pray for me."
It's unclear if the two incidents are related, but they did occur blocks apart from each other.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or for Spanish 1-888-57-PISTA (74782)
