Patch reports that the NYPD is trying to identify a man who masturbated in front of a woman in the elevator of an East Harlem public housing building, police said.
The unknown man followed a 23-year-old woman into the elevator of a building in the Wagner Houses development on First Avenue and East 124th Street on Saturday night, police said. When the elevator doors closed, the man began to masturbate in front of the woman, police said.
The man ran out of the elevator when it stopped on the building’s 13th floor and eventually fled the apartment complex, police said.
The suspect is described as a man standing 6-feet-tall who was last seen wearing a red and white striped shirt, black shorts and black and white sneakers.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
