Police Searching for Man Who Exposed Groin While on Bike to Several Underage Girls in Woodside, Ridgewood, Maspeth

The NYPD is on the lookout for a man who exposed himself at least eight times to several underage girls in three Queens neighborhoods, including Woodside.

The incidents range between May and November, where a man described as white or white-Hispanic in his 20s approached victims between the ages of 11 and 15 in Woodside, Ridgewood, and Maspeth, and exposed his penis to them, according to police.

The man’s tactics include approaching the underage girls and asking them for a piece of paper before exposing his groin. He then flees the scene on his bike. Other methods include making a statement to get the victim’s attention and exposing his penis to them once they turn, police said.

In the first two incidents, both recorded on May 11, the man approached a 13-year-old victim near 48th Street and Laurel Hill Boulevard at around 7:24 a.m. and exposed his penis to her after asking for a piece of paper, according to police. Nearly an hour later, one block away from Grover Cleveland High School in Ridgewood, the man employed the same tactic on a 14-year-old girl. Both victims were not physically injured, police said.

Two more incidents involving the man asking for a piece of paper and fleeing on his bike after showing his penis are recorded—an incident near Ridgewood’s Evergreen Park on the afternoon of Sept. 20, where the victim was a 15-year-old, and another one block away from Ridgewood’s I.S. 77 on the afternoon of Oct. 2, where the victim was a 12-year-old, according to police.

In the four other incidents, taking place on May 30, June 2, Oct. 17, and two on Nov. 2, the man exposed his penis to a 13-year-old, a 14-year-old, a 12-year-old, an 11-year-old, and a 12 and 13-year-old, respectively, after making statements to get their attention, police said. He then fled on his bike. None of the underage girls were physically hurt, according to police.

Police have released surveillance photo and video of the suspect. The photo is from a May 30 incident near 51st Ave and 72nd Place in Woodside. The video first shows a clip from an Oct. 2 incident, and another clip from an Oct. 17 incident, both in Ridgewood.

The man is also described with a height of 5’10”. He wears a jacket with white stripes on the sleeves and shoulders, and rides a bicycle with classic drop-style handlebars, according to police.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or for Spanish 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

Bike guy is welcome to hang with me at Starbucks and drink Salted Carmel Lattes with me anytime. Just come into Starbucks and look for the person wearing the mismatched communist colored clothing with dirty Pro Keds…that’s me!

Bruno, you really are a low life joking about this matter! I challenge you to a game of Parcheesi at Starbucks.

grab em by the penny-farthing

Disgusting. This kind of brazen sexual harassment is what we’d expect from our president, not upstanding members of our community.


All your precious Hollywood stars that you so idolize and look up to and set the “moral” agenda for the country because whatever they say must be right you know. All are a bunch of sicko pedos, and Weinstein… don’t even get me started!

thanks for agreeing Trump is a sexual predator

Great point, our president is just as bad of a sexual predator as the people you mentioned.

use your eyes

There’s actually no bike lane here, don’t take my word for it, there’s a video directly above.

Your tired rant is even more pointless on this post than usual.
