NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD has released new surveillance video of a vehicle used by a man wanted in connection with a sex assault of a young girl in Queens.

On Sunday afternoon, police said a man walked up to a 12-year-old girl who was with her two friends on an Ozone Park street and told her she would make a good model.

The man also said he knew rapper Nicki Minaj and asked the victim if she wanted to meet the star, sources said.

That’s when the girl got into his vehicle and they drove to a nearby location where he exposed himself and committed a criminal sex act, police said.

The girl managed to escape and ran to friend’s house nearby and called 911. She was taken to the hospital where she was treated and released.
