Police Hunt Man Accused of Following, Groping Two Women in 10 Minutes in New York

Police are hunting for a man they say was caught on video attacking and groping two different women in New York in 10 minutes.

Video surveillance from one of the alleged attacks on Sunday, March 12, shows a man following his 28-year-old victim into the lobby of her Queens apartment building.

He follows her to the stairwell before pushing her up against the wall, placing his hand over her mouth to muffle her screams.

The video them shows the woman pushing the man off her, before he runs away.

Just 10 minutes earlier, a woman reported being groped by a man at the nearby Food Universe supermarket.

Police reviewed surveillance footage, and say the suspect is the same man in the apartment attack.

That video shows the man approaching a 39-year-old woman in the store and briefly speaking to her before forcefully grabbing her buttocks and hurrying away.

Anyone with information on either incidents can call 1-800-577-TIPS, police say.
