Bike-Riding Butt-Slapper Wanted in Queens: Police

Police are looking for a man they say slapped a woman’s buttocks as he rode up behind her on a bicycle in Queens.

The 31-year-old victim was walking on Jackson Avenue near 23rd Street in Long Island City at about 4 p.m on April 22 when the man slapped her and rode off, police said.

Three similar incidents were reported earlier last month in Long Island City. Police said a man was wanted for slapping three women’s buttocks while riding his bike in the neighborhood between April 2 and April 16. It was not yet clear if this latest incident was related to the previous three, police said.

Officials released a sketch of the suspect in the April 22 incident. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
