Police are looking for a man who groped a 13-year-old girl in Crown Heights after threatening her with a firearm.
According to an NYPD release, the incident happened shortly after 9 p.m. on June 4, when the victim was approached by a man who tried to flirt with her on the corner of Utica Avenue and Eastern Parkway; after she "adamantly refused his advances," she ducked into a bodega, but he pulled her out and "simulated that he had a firearm," and began groping her.
The victim then dashed back into the store with the suspect following her, police said, and she was able to take a cellphone photo of her assailant before the store's employee forced him outside.
