MANHATTAN — Police are searching for a well-dressed man wanted for groping two women on the Upper East Side in broad daylight.
The incidents come just months after a series of sexual assaults that left women in the neighborhood on edge.
Police said that the suspect, described as about 30-years-old, struck for the first time on Feb. 25. At 12:30 p.m., he allegedly approached a 33-year-old woman on Park Avenue and East 62nd Street, grabbed her inner thigh and ran off.
Two days later, police say he struck again, this time grabbing the buttocks of a 19-year-old woman near East 67th Street and Second Avenue at 1:55 p.m.
Witnesses said the neatly dressed man is 5 feet 11 inches tall and 180 pounds.
