    Police arrested a 27-year-old man in connection with a series of gropings in Brooklyn laundromats where girls as young as 14 were targeted, authorities said. 

    Lowell Britt, of Bay Shore, is accused in seven cases of sexual abuse at laundromats dating back to 2010, police said.

    Authorities say he allegedly groped a 43-year-old woman, a 28-year-old woman and a 32-year-old woman who were doing their laundry in Canarsie on March 30. 

    Police also tied Britt to reported gropings of two 14-year-old girls and a 16-year-old girl in a Bushwick laundromat in March 2012 and to an attack involving a 19-year-old girl in Brownsville in July 2010.

    Britt was charged with one felony count of sexual abuse, public lewdness and multiple counts of persistent sex abuse and sexual abuse. Information on an attorney wasn't immediately available.
