Police are looking for a man who coaxed a 12-year-old Queens girl into his car, drove her to a nearby location and committed a criminal sexual act before the victim fled the vehicle and ran to a friend's house, where she called 911.
Authorities say the suspect approached the girl near the corner of Lincoln Street and 116th Avenue around 2:30 p.m. Sunday and started talking to her. He allegedly told her that he worked for pop star Nicki Minaj and told her that he would take the girl to see the celebrity, authorities said. Once she was in the car he drove her down the street, exposed himself and then committed the sexual act.
