QUEENS, N.Y. (PIX11) -- A 15-year-old girl was groped in the elevator of her Queens apartment building by a man who was caught on camera, a lead that police hope will generate tips from the public to get him off the street.
It happened about 9:20 p.m. Aug. 13 at the girl’s building near 70th Street and Northern Boulevard, police said Sunday.
The man followed the teen into an elevator and grabbed her buttocks and breasts, police said. He then ran away.
The culprit, who was caught on grainy surveillance camera, is described as an Asian male in his teens to early 20s, about 135 pounds. He was wearing a grey shirt and blue shorts at the time of the attack.
Anyone with information is urged to call NYPD’s anonymous Crime Stoppers tip line at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
