Woman May Be 9th Victim Of Suspected Upper East Side Groper

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Upper East Side groper may have hit again.

Officers are ramping up the search for the suspect after another incident this weekend. The latest assault occurred Saturday afternoon inside the 59th Street and Lexington Avenue subway station.

1010 WINS’ Terry Sheridan reports

Police say a man followed a 21-year-old woman and tried to take a photo up her skirt.

He ran off and she ran to police, giving officers the same description as the one given by other victims of a man, 4′ 11″, 120 pounds with spiky hair and a gap tooth.

“Maybe they should get more security down in the subways with police walking around or more video cameras,” said Gramercy resident Kelly O’Neill.

The suspect is accused of groping at least nine women. Police say all of the victims are in their 20s and early 30s.  

Anyone with information should call police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.

      arresting them just makes them feel like they are tough guys. Deporting them is a workable solution. Maybe the next time they cross the border they will learn to respect people and laws.

      I just paid $22,87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38,76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62,81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentStart.com

    Remember the Alamo! Lest we forget: “All but two of the Texian defenders were killed. Santa Anna’s perceived cruelty during the battle inspired many Texians—both Texas settlers and adventurers from the United States—to join the Texian Army. Buoyed by a desire for revenge, the Texians defeated the Mexican Army at the Battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836, ending the revolution.”

    don,t drop the soap my dude cause your day is coming when you head to prison with the rest of the prevs and maybe they put you in general population so that some 1 may grope you like you like you did those women..you freak…

  6. Tired of Being Disrespected says:

    If this young man grabs a woman, she should turn around and grab him, swiftly and forcefully. Scream loudly and don’t let go of him. New York has many good samaritans and they will come to assist. Only then will this young creep get caught. Many of these young Latino’s are in TVS, its so sad that GANGS are what teach and lead these young men. More police presence helps, arresting them just makes them feel like they are tough guys. Deporting them is a workable solution. Maybe the next time they cross the border they will learn to respect people and laws.

    I just watched report where a victim had her skirt lifted and the assaulter tried to photograph/video her butt. Is there much difference between ththis pshyco and the news videographer video taping womens’ butts the entire report????? REALLY!
