Queens Serial Groper Strikes Again; Borough Plagued By Second Alleged Fondler in Less Than A Year
There's a man roaming the streets of Queens groping women...again.
According to police, the unidentified suspect has extended four unwanted feel-ups to women in Jackson Heights since March 22. In each case, the suspect approached a woman, groped her, and then scampered off.
This is the second time in less than a year that Queens has been plagued by a serial pervert.
In August, another unidentified suspect was feeling up women -- also in Jackson Heights.

In those cases, the suspect had basically the same M.O. as the groper of today -- he would walk up behind women, cop a quick feel, and scoot on out of there.
It's unclear whether the same groper also is responsible for the recent attacks.
The last time the serial groper struck was Monday night about 5 p.m..
The groper's victims have ranged in age from 19-47. The attacks typically happen at night, between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m.
The groper is described as being between the ages of 17 and 25. He's about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-8.
Anyone with information about the groper is asked to call the New York City Police Department at 800-577-TIPPS.
