NYPD Hunts Serial Groper in the Bronx
Cops are hunting a sexual deviant who has been prowling the Tremont section of the Bronx. He's wanted for groping two young women last week. The first took place on Thursday, September 26, just before 7 a.m., at the intersection of East 188th Street and Lorillard Place. The man approached a 20-year-old woman from behind and forcibly touched her, and then fled on foot.
The second took place on Friday, September 27, at Fairmount Place and Marmion Avenue, and involved a 26-year-old victim and a similar groping.
The alleged groper is described as a male hispanic in his twenties, about 5-foot-8 and 170 pounds, with a goatee and a ponytail. He drives a grey minivan. Anyone with information can call 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
