A man approached a 19-year-old female on 41st Street–by 43rd Avenue–from behind and then touched her private parts, according to police.
The incident occurred on May 16th at 10:50 pm.
The victim, who asked to conceal her identity, said she was walking home when the man pinned her against a fence on the corner of 41st Street and 43rd Avenue.
“He grabbed me from behind,” she told NY1. “He put one of his hands into my pants and I felt that he pulled out his privates.”
The woman managed to escape before anything else happened.
“I tried to, like, kick my way out of it, so I kind of stepped on his foot,” she told the NY1. “I tried to use my arms to get away and then I just ran home.”
Police are classifying the incident as a forcible touching.
