NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police said a Brooklyn man has been charged in connection with a series of groping attacks on young girls and for assaulting a police officer in Park Slope.

Jesse Dailey, 34, was arrested on sex abuse, forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child charges, police said.

Just after 4 p.m. on Nov. 11, police said Dailey approached an 11-year-old girl on 4th Street, walked up behind her and groped her. He then fled the scene.

Police said he has also been charged in connection with an incident back on Sept. 20.

A 10-year-old girl and her 11-year-old friend were walking on 5th Avenue when Dailey approached them from behind, police said. He then rubbed up against the 10 year old and groped the 11 year old before fleeing, police said.

Dailey was also charged with resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer investigating the incident.

When she approached him, police said he attacked, throwing the detective to the ground and dislocating her shoulder.
