Aug. 22, 2019 By Allie Griffin

A man in Ridgewood has twice groped women’s buttocks and made a getaway on his bike, prompting the NYPD to release a video of him in hopes of identifying the man.

The first incident took place on Aug. 14 when a 20-year-old woman was walking near Stockholm Street and Seneca Avenue at 5:50 p.m. The unidentified man approached her from behind, grabbed her buttocks and fled the area on a bike, police said.

The following day, he struck again. At 11 p.m. on Aug. 15, he approached a 26-year-old woman who was walking along Bleecker Street near Woodward Avenue and grabbed her buttocks. He again snuck up from behind the victim and fled on a bike, police said.

The police released a video of the suspect from the Aug. 14 incident and describe as being Hispanic, 20 to 30 years old, and last seen wearing all dark clothing.

Anyone with information in regards to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
