Central Park Groping Suspect Not Upper East Side Attacker, Police Believe
MANHATTAN — The Bronx man arrested for sexually attacking a jogger in Central Park is not believed to be the sicko wanted for a string of gropings on the Upper East Side, sources said Saturday.
Eusebio Molina, 26, allegedly groped a woman Friday morning as she ran on East Drive, near 72nd Street.
But the woman found two officers in the park who tracked Molina down near 80th Street and placed him under arrest.
Molina was charged with one count of third-degree sexual abuse.
A separate attacker is believed to have groped seven women on the Upper East Side in a terrifying spree that began in January.
In each of the cases, young women were molested inside or near their buildings.
