Detectives want the public to help them find the sleazy man who pleasured himself in front of a woman on a Fresh Meadows street, then stalked her as she tried to get away from him.
Law enforcement sources said the depraved act occurred at 3:40 a.m. on Aug. 3 in the vicinity of 65th Avenue and 174th Street.
According to police, a 47-year-old woman sat in her car when she was approached by the male suspect, who proceeded to masturbate in front of her.
Cops said the woman drove away from the creep and traveled to a nearby gas station, where she sought assistance. She noticed that the perverted perpetrator followed her to the location.
The woman then pulled out her cellphone and went to take his picture, which prompted the man to run away; he was observed heading westbound on the Horace Harding Expressway. The incident was later reported to the 107th Precinct.
On Aug. 8, police released images of the creep, who’s described as a white man between 20 and 30 years of age, standing between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall, with a beard and a tattoo on his left forearm. He was last seen wearing a a black baseball cap, a blue tanktop, beige shorts and black and gold sneakers.
