The NYPD released a surveillance video Sunday of a guitar-carrying creep that they have been looking for since a “forcible touching incident” in Corona more than a month ago.
Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights reported that a 30-year-old woman was walking near the corner of Roosevelt Avenue and 103rd Street just after 2 p.m. on Friday, June 10, when the suspect approached from behind and grabbed her buttocks, according to the NYPD.
The suspect fled the scene and the victim followed him to a residential building located at 100-19 40th Rd. in the 110th Precinct. The victim recorded her alleged groper as he went into the building and later came out of the residence in a different change of clothing, police said.
There were no injuries reported, police said and described the suspect as in his 20s around 160 pounds, 5’6”, with a medium build, brown eyes, medium complexion and short dark hair. He was first observed wearing blue jeans, a blue jacket, brown boots and a beige cowboy hat, and he was holding a blue guitar. He was later observed wearing a short-sleeved black shirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at nypdcrimestoppers.com, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
