A 37-year-old female was assaulted in Jackson Heights on August 25 when she was approached from behind and groped over her clothes, according to police.
The victim was attacked around 5:45 am while walking her dog on 84th Street between 35th and 37th Avenues, though she did not get a good look at her attacker because it was still dark out.
He grabbed her genitals over her clothes from behind and then fled in to a white sedan when she screamed, according to police.
The incident is under investigation by the Queens Special Victims Unit.
The police have not yet released surveillance footage, but anyone with information on the incident is urged to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
