A man went on a groping spree in Corona Tuesday morning, forcibly touching five different women within a span of just five minutes, police said.
Between 8:15 a.m. and 8:20 a.m., he allegedly groped the victims who range in age from 17 to 57 years old near 55th Avenue and 99th Street. In one instance, a 30-year-old woman was walking when the unidentified man approached and slapped her buttocks, according to law enforcement sources. He then ran off in an unknown direction.
The NYPD has released a photo and video surveillance of the suspect who is wanted for questioning. He can be seen wearing khaki pants and a black polka-dot shirt with the word “CHALLENGE” written across it.
Anyone with information in regard 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).
