NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are searching for a young teenage boy who groped a woman as she jogged through the north end of Central Park late last week.

At 8:20 p.m. Friday, the 24-year-old woman was jogging through the park near 110th Street and Seventh Avenue, when she was stopped by five teenage boys, police said. The boys asked the woman for a kiss, police said.

When the woman refused, one of the boys touched her groin area and the group ran off, police said.

The boy accused of groping the woman is described as a black male between the ages of 12 and 14, standing 5 feet 5 inches tall with large front teeth, wearing a light gray hoodie and a backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS, go to the Crime Stoppers Web site, or text tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and enter TIP577.
