NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Local lawmakers and community leaders on Monday were calling on residents to help police locate a suspect accused of sexually assaulting three young girls in Queens.
As CBS 2’s Weijia Jiang reported, five days since police said the man started a sex spree targeting the little girls in South Ozone Park, police have yet to find him.
Many parents in South Ozone Park have been on edge as police continue to plaster the neighborhood with posters of the suspect wanted in three separate attacks.
“We have to come home earlier just to make sure she gets home safely,” said parent Jerry Bacchus.
“It is very frustrating, and I’m very fearful for all the children in this area,” added parent Kayetrina Murchison.
Among the children about whom Murchison worries is her own 8-year-old daughter.
