Have You Seen This Bushwick Sexual Assault Suspect?
Because the NYPD has video this time.
Police said that the suspect sexually assaulted two women roughly two months apart. During the first attack, which took place on February 1, the suspect grabbed a 39-year-old woman walking down Woodbine Street in Bushwick, pushed her down, and grabbed her breasts and behind. The survivor was able to fight off her attacker, and he fled on foot. Video of the suspect below.
In the second incident, which took place inside a Bushwick building, cops said the suspect approached a 37-year-old woman and asked her for money. When the woman told the suspect she didn't have any, he sexually assaulted her, cops said.
Police confirmed to the Voice that the suspect is a Hispanic male, between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-10, and was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, black jeans, and a brown knit hat. He may have been wearing glasses and black sneakers as well.
