View Comments ()



    Police are looking for a man who allegedly sexually abused a 12-year-old girl walking her dog on a Brooklyn street Wednesday.

    The girl was walking her dog in the area of Arlington and Hale avenues at about 9:30 a.m. in Cypress Hills when the man approached her from behind, kissed her on the cheek and groped her before fleeing, according to police. 

    The victim was not hurt.

    The man appeared to be about 18 to 24 years old and about 6 feet tall.

    Police also said Friday they were looking for a man who exposed himself to a 12-year-old girl who was taking out the trash in a Bronx apartment building in January. 

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
