Police search for Queens groper
Police are looking for a man wanted for groping four women in Queens over the past month and a half.
Cops say they are looking for a Hispanic man, about 17 to 25 years old, who has been groping women in a string of March and April crimes. All the gropings occurred in the Jackson Heights neighborhood.
The first incident recorded by cops happened on March 22 at around 8:30 p.m. The suspect approached a 22-year-old woman on the street and touched her inappropriately, cops said. He then ran off into the night.
Four days later, on March 26 at 6 a.m., the suspect again approached a woman, this time aged 47. He again grabbed her and fled the scene.
Following that pattern, the perp groped a 19-year-old woman on April 1 at 4:20 a.m., and the next day, at about 5 p.m., he groped a 41-year-old woman, police said.
All the cases resulted in no reported injuries, cops said.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, about 17 to 25 years old, who stands about 5’5″ to 5’8″ tall, cops said. According to a rendering the police released, he has dark, shoulder-length hair.
Anyone with information should call 800-577-TIPS.
