Woman Attacked by Stranger Twice in 2 Weeks: NYPD

Police are searching for a sexual abuse suspect who they say attacked the same woman twice in less than two weeks in Manhattan. 

The suspect, 49-year-old Jeffrey Mahon, followed a 23-year-old woman near 65th Street and Broadway on the Upper West Side the afternoon of Tuesday, May 3, then pulled her by the arm and grabbed her buttocks, according to police.

The woman was able to break free of Mahon's grip and run away. 

Then at about 8 a.m. on Sunday, May 15, the woman again encountered Mahon in the area of 45th Street and Eighth Avenue in midtown, police said. She was getting out of her car, and Mahon tried to touch her. 

She got back inside her car and locked the doors, police said. Mahon banged on the hood of her car before running away. 

Police say that despite the fact that she was attacked twice by Mahon, the victim does not know him.

Mahon's last known address is in Hoboken, New Jersey. 

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