Police are searching for a man who allegedly exposed himself to two women in the Woodside and Elmhurst area weeks ago.

His first victim was a 31-year-old, who was walking near Woodside Avenue and 71st Street at around 9:40 p.m. on Oct. 21. Police say he approached the woman, put his arm around her, and exposed himself to her before fleeing.

The pervert then struck again on Nov. 2, when he followed an 18-year-old into a building near 82nd Street and Broadway at around 6:40 p.m. The unidentified man allegedly trailed behind the 18-year-old up to the second floor when he grabbed her shoulder and exposed himself to her.

No injuries were reported in both incidents.

Police describe the suspect as wearing a black hat and black hooded sweatshirt. No other description was available.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit

I always worry about the females I know having these types of issues. I’ve heard so many stories of woman I know being followed or sitting across from a masturbator on the subway. I hope this dude gets caught and catches a serious sentence because any man who follow a woman into her building to expose himself is a rapist in training just working up the courage and confidence to go to the next level.
