The NYPD is searching for a man wanted for groping a minor in broad daylight earlier this week.
The incident took place on Monday, November 20 at about 1:55 p.m.
When a 12-year-old girl was walking down the street, an unknown male suspect approached her and “placed his hand on the victim’s buttocks.”
He then fled in an unknown direction.

Police have shared a surveillance video of the suspect.
