Police have released an image of a man whom they say exposed himself to a young girl on a Sunnyside street earlier this week.
According to the NYPD, the incident occurred at 7:25 a.m. on May 11 along an undisclosed spot on 48th Street in the neighborhood, as the 13-year-old female victim was walking through the area.
Law enforcement sources said the suspect — described as a white man in his mid 20s with close cut hair — approached the girl and asked her for a piece of paper. Police said he then dropped his pants and exposed his genitalia at the victim.
He then fled the scene on a bicycle, pedaling northbound on 48th Street, authorities said. The incident was later reported to the 108th Precinct.
Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
