The diminutive pervert targeting young women on the Upper East Side has struck again, according to police, attacking his 12th female victim over the weekend and sending her to the hospital.
And this time, the 4-foot-11-inch man, who only weighs about 120 pounds — and who usually sticks to the Upper East Side — is moving west.
Police said the suspect trailed a 28-year-old woman as she walked through Central Park at 10 p.m. Friday, just east of West Drive at 66th Street and near the former Tavern on the Green site. After approaching her from behind and initiating a conversation, the man then sexually assaulted her, police said.
The woman was able to punch and kick him away before fleeing. She was treated at a nearby hospital and released.
