NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Authorities are looking for a suspect in a series of forcible touching incidents in Brooklyn.

The NYPD said the suspect entered laundromats in the borough and exposed himself and rubbed against unsuspecting female victims, including three teenagers.

The first two incidents happened at night on March 18 in Bushwick. Authorities said at around 8 p.m., the suspect exposed and touched a 14-year-old and 16-year-old.

A little over an hour later, the suspect victimized another 14-year-old girl, police said.

It’s unclear if both incidents happened at the same location.

Then on March 30, police said the same man forcibly touched a 43-year-old around 9 a.m. and then a 32-year-old at 9:20 a.m. in Canarsie.

There were no injuries reported in any of the incidents, police said.

The suspect is described by police as a black male, between 5-foot-9 and 6-2 and about 200 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
