Authorities are searching for a teenage boy who allegedly groped two women minutes apart in the Morrisania neighborhood in the Bronx.
Around 10 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5, a 39-year-old woman was walking near the corner of Elton Avenue and East 156th Street when the teen grabbed her behind before fleeing the location, police reported.
Just 15 minutes later, a 33-year-old woman walking near 2882 Third Ave. reported that the same teen approached her from behind and grabbed her breast before fleeing onto Westchester Avenue, authorities added.
Police described the boy as approximately 16 years old, black, about 5-foot-8 with brown eyes and short black hair. He was last seen wearing a blue football jersey, blue shorts and white sneakers.
