The NYPD released surveillance video on Sunday of a creep carrying a guitar they had been looking for since a “forced contact incident” in Corona more than a month ago.
Jackson Heights 115th Precinct Police reported a 30-year-old woman was walking near the corner of Roosevelt Avenue and 103rd Street just after 2 p.m. Friday, June 10, when the suspect approached from behind and grabbed his butt, according to the NYPD.
The suspect fled and the victim followed him to an apartment building located at 100-19 40th Rd. in the 110th district. The victim recorded his alleged groper as he entered the building and later exited the residence in a different change of clothes, police said.
No injuries were reported, police said and described the suspect as in his 20s, weighing about 160 pounds, 5-foot-6, with an average build, brown eyes, medium skin tone and short black hair. He was first observed wearing blue jeans, a blue jacket, brown boots, and a tan cowboy hat, and he was holding a blue guitar. He was then observed wearing a short-sleeved black shirt and blue jeans.
Anyone with information about the identity of the suspects is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782).
