Police believe the man who sexually abused two 12-year-old girls on Queens streets last November has struck again.

Authorities say the man exposed himself while walking next to a 13-year-old girl on Monday near Seabury Street just before 8 a.m. He then ran off. The girl was not hurt, police said.

Last November, police believe the same man groped two girls in two separate incidents after asking them for help with directions. On Nov. 7, the suspect pulled up to one 12-year-old girl, who had been walking near 54th Avenue at about 8 a.m. He got out of the car, asked her if she knew an address and showed her a piece of paper with numbers on it. The girl got into his car, where he touched her over her clothing, police said.

The girl got out of the car and the man drove off. She was not injured. It wasn't clear why she got in the car.

A few weeks later, the man stopped another 12-year-old girl on the street and asked her for directions. Again, he showed her a piece of paper with numbers on it. This time, the girl said she couldn't help him. He touched her over her clothing and drove off. The girl was not injured.

The man is described as being about 40 years old and 6 feet tall. The car he's been seen driving is a white sedan with a green, white and orange or red flag sticker on the driver’s door with an eagle in the middle.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
