Police in New York are looking for a man who sexually assaulted a woman in a Brooklyn beauty store by “licking her buttocks.” The attack happened on Wednesday, June 23, with the suspect walking up behind the victim and assaulting her when she bent over to grab an item from the refrigerator, the New York Post reports. So far, the perpetrator is still at large.
The assault was caught on camera. Surveillance footage shows the man approaching the victim in the shop near Van Sinderen Avenue in the neighborhood of Brownsville at around 2 p.m. After the man licks her buttocks, she turns around to say something to the man, who immediately runs away.
It’s unclear where the suspect went after leaving the store. He fled like a coward when confronted and unfortunately no witnesses seemed to be able to say which way he went.
The NYPD is encouraging anyone who knows the man to come forward. After releasing images of the suspect, the NYPD has asked anyone with any information to come forward by calling the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS or 1-888-57-PISTA for Spanish.
