RIDGEWOOD — Police were looking for a suspect wanted in connection with two robbery and forcible touching incidents in Ridgewood.

Police said that on Saturday, March 19, around 1 a.m., the suspect approached a 20-year-old female and pushed her to the ground. He then grabbed the victim’s genitals under her clothing and fled the location, police said.

Minutes later, the suspect approached a 25-year-old woman near Harman Street and put his arms around her neck and tried to get into her pants, police said. The victim managed to get away, but not before the suspect had emptied her pockets.

Police described the suspect as a Hispanic man.
