BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn (PIX11) — A man grabbed a woman’s breast and tried to pull her pants off in a Brooklyn building last month, police said Wednesday.
The victim, 28, was working in the basement of the building near Nostrand and Myrtle avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant on March 13 at around 8:30 a.m. when the suspect groped her, according to the NYPD. The suspect then shoved the woman to the ground before trying to take her pants off, but her screams scared him off, police said.
