Police need the public’s help in finding a man who touched a child and made creepy statements to him at a Bayside pizzeria earlier this month.
Law enforcement sources said the incident took place at 4:39 p.m. on Nov. 14 inside Jack’s Pizza and Pasta, located in the Bay Terrace Shopping Center at 212-49 26th Ave.
According to police, the suspect — a white man in his 50s, standing 5 foot 7 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds — approached the young boy and began touching his hair. Police learned that the creep, who may have been intoxicated, allegedly told the boy, “You have nice hair, nice eyes and a nice mouth,” then asked the child to open his mouth.
Authorities said the creep winked at the child as he sought help from pizzeria employees.
On Sunday, the 109th Precinct Community Council posted a wanted flier regarding the incident on its Facebook page. An image of the perpetrator on the flier shows him wearing a black ski cap and a beige jacket.
Anyone with information regarding the incident or the suspect’s whereabouts can call the 109th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-321-2294. All calls are kept confidential.
