Police have released a sketch of the man who allegedly groped teenage girls in three separate incidents in Flushing since November.

During all of the incidents, which took place within a five-block radius, the suspect grabs the buttocks or crotch area of the young women over their clothing before fleeing on foot, authorities said.

The suspect first targeted a 15-year-old girl at the corner of 136th Street and 60th Avenue in Flushing at about 7 a.m. on Nov. 6, 2014, according to police.

He then allegedly groped a 13-year-old girl on March 11 of this year at about 7:50 a.m. outside of 132-34 58th Ave., near 134th Street.

The suspect is also accused of attacking a 19-year-old woman at the corner of 136th Street and 59th Avenue at about 7:30 a.m. on March 23.

Police additionally released video footage of the suspect earlier this week and describe the man as white, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, 30 to 40 years old and 170 pounds with a slim build. He was last seen wearing a dark green jacket, grey hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
