A creep exposed himself to minors in Ridgewood twice on Thursday morning near a playground and middle school, police said — the latest in a recent series of flashings in the neighborhood.
According to the 104th Precinct, both of the Nov. 2 incidents occurred at approximately 7:40 a.m. and 7:55 a.m. respectively.
The first incident took place on Madison Street near Rosemary’s Playground and I.S. 93, when the individual approached an 11-year-old female, said, “Hey, look at this,” exposed his penis and fled on his bicycle, police said. No injuries were reported as a result of this incident, police said.
Only a few blocks away, authorities said, on Forest Avenue in the vicinity of Gates Avenue, the pervert approached 12- and 13-year-old females. He again said, “Hey, look at this,” exposed his penis and fled on his bicycle. The females were not injured as a result of this incident, detectives added.
Police have described the individual as an adult male who was last seen wearing a red and black plaid button-down shirt, blue jeans and a black wool hat, and he was last seen riding a black bicycle.
The 104th Precinct conducted a search of the area, with negative results, and the investigation is ongoing. The precinct confirmed, however, that there will be added police presence in the area of the crime.
Anyone with information on these incidents are asked to contact the 104th Precinct at 718-386-3004, or the NYPD tip line at 800-577-TIPS (8477).
