The man is described as Hispanic and about 17- to 25-years old, NYPD said. He is around 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-8 inches tall, police said.

While they were not injured, four neighborhood women, all of whom are Hispanic, reported being inappropriately touched by the man, who later ran away, police said.

The man is said to have assaulted a 22-year-old woman March 22 at 8:35 p.m., a 47-year-old woman March 26 at 6 a.m., a 19-year-old woman April 1 at 4:20 a.m. and a 41-year-old woman April 2 at 5:15 p.m.

Those with information should contact the NYPD’s Crimestoppers via its hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, by visiting its website at or through texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577.
