A Middle Village man was arrested Sunday and booked at the 104th Precinct in Ridgewood in connection with two forcible touching incidents early last month, according to the NYPD.

David Perez, 33, of 79th Street, was taken into custody on Nov. 5 for targeting women in two different police precincts on Wednesday, Oct. 5.

Perez allegedly approached a 25-year-old woman as she was walking in the vicinity of Metropolitan Avenue and 65th Place in Middle Village at around 5:20 p.m. and grabbed the victim’s buttocks before running off in an unknown direction, police said.

Hours earlier, Perez was in the confines of the 110th Precinct in Elmhurst when he approached a 24-year-old woman as she walked in front of 90-15 Queens Blvd. in front of the Queens Center Mall, where he grabbed the victim’s rear end before running off, police said.

Neither woman was physically injured during the incidents, according to the NYPD.

Perez was charged with three counts of forcible touching and three counts of harassment. His arraignment is pending in Queens Criminal Court.
