Cops have arrested a man who allegedly followed a 76-year-old woman into her apartment building last weekend and grabbed her leg.

The incident occurred on April 3 at 8:40 a.m., in an apartment vestibule near 44th Street at 25th Avenue, according to police.

Basilios Limberis, a 37-year-old homeless man, allegedly followed the victim into the building and placed his hand on her leg, the NYPD said.

He then ran out of the building when she yelled for him to stop.

Limberis was arrested Tuesday. He is charged with attempted forcible touching and criminal trespassing.

Never Left Astoria

Would you believe the guy was busted by the 114 and then released on recognance and then busted again for the same thing the next day (and finally held for “observation”) What’s wrong with our court system?

Guy 47

Sounds like someone with mental health issues. Unfortunately the chances of him getting help are slim these days.
Glad he wasn’t violent.
