BROOKLYN – Authorities are on the lookout for a man who allegedly stalked a teenage girl around a Brooklyn station twice in the past week.

The New York Police Department says the victim, a 15-year-old, was on the south bound platform of the Atlantic Avenue station when she noticed the creep staring at her and following her around the station last Wednesday about 8:15 a.m.

The stranger then approached her, grabbed her arm and told her to come with him, cops said. She refused and he fled the scene.

Yesterday, around the same time as last week’s incident, the teen was once again on the platform when he followed her and tried to persuade her to leave with him. She refused and took a picture of him before he fled.
