NEW YORK —A man followed a 14-year-old girl two mornings in a row in both Manhattan and the Bronx, NYPD officials said.
He approached the teen near the Bowling Green subway station the morning of Sept. 25, police said. The man talked to the teen and followed her to Trinity Place. He gave the teen $20 and made advances toward her.
The next morning, he followed the same teen onto a southbound No. 4 train at the Burnside Avenue subway station, according to police. He stayed in the same subway car as the teen. The teen saw a group of friends at the 170th Street subway station and ran to them.
