Another bike-riding pervert attempted to expose himself to a young girl on a Ridgewood street corner earlier this month, police said.

According to authorities, the suspect — described as a light-skinned Hispanic male in his 20s or 30s, with a bald or shaved head, wearing gray jeans and black sweatshirt, who was seen on a black bicycle — attempted to expose his genitals to the 12-year-old female victim on the corner of Palmetto Street and Forest Avenue at approximately 8 a.m. on Oct. 17.

The 104th Precinct released a wanted poster for the creep on their Twitter account, looking to bring him in for endangering the welfare of a child.


Detectives are investigating a possible link between this incident and a similar episode of indecent exposure that occurred in Ridgewood earlier this month. On Oct. 2, a bike-riding perpetrator exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl in the vicinity of Seneca Avenue and Stephen Street. The creep in that incident was described as a Hispanic male with a light complexion believed to be between 18 and 25 years of age, with a muscular build and dark hair, last seen wearing a black jacket with white stripes down the arms and blue jeans.

Anyone with information in regards to either incident is asked to contact Detectives Todd Friedrich or Ron Scrimenti of the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-366-2723, or Detective Borough Queens North at 718-520-9200. All calls are kept confidential.
