CENTRAL PARK — A woman jogging through Central Park was grabbed in the crotch by an out-of-control teenager who approached her with a group of friends, police said.

The victim, 24, was running at 8:20 p.m. Friday, near Seventh Avenue and West 110th Street, when the group of five teenage boys approached her and asked for a kiss, according to police.

The victim refused, and one of the teens grabbed at her crotch, police said. Police released a sketch of the suspect, and described him as between 12 and 14 years old, about 5 feet 5 inches tall with large front teeth, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477).
