Police released a photo Saturday of a teenager who allegedly grabbed a woman’s crotch while she was walking with her 3-year-old son in Astoria Park last month.

The suspect was riding his bike in the park at around 9:15 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23 when he approached the 41-year-old victim from behind, before reaching between her legs and grabbing her crotch and breasts. He then pedaled away on his bike in the vicinity of 19th Street and 23rd Drive.

The suspect is described as being approximately 18-years-old, 5 feet 4 inches tall and with a light complexion and brown hair.

He was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket with the words ‘New Balance’ printed on the left arm, black jeans, a black book bag, red and white ‘Air Jordan’ sneakers, and riding a gray BMX bicycle with a red front tire.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Always helpful to release a photo of the perp a month after the incident. The fighting 114th spends most of their time double parked updating their social media. Meanwhile perverts, bank robbers, and other predators roam freely to commit crimes in broad daylight.
