View Comments ()



    Police are looking for a man who allegedly pulled a girl out of a Brooklyn store, pretended he had a gun and groped her, authorities say. 

    The man approached the 13-year-old girl at the corner of Utica Avenue and Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights June 4 and tried to talk to her, police say. The girl tried to get away and walked into a nearby store. 

    The suspect followed her into the store, pulled her out and gestured as if he had a gun as he forcibly touched her, police said. 

    The girl ran back into the store, and when the suspect again followed her, she was able to take a photo of the man. A worker made the man leave the store. 

    Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
