MANHATTAN — Cops are hunting an overweight man who allegedly forcibly touched an 11-year-old girl inside a Gramercy Dunkin' Donuts last week.
The incident unfolded at 361 E. 21st St. about 11:30 a.m. on March 7, when a heavy-set, white male with short gray hair between 50 and 60 years old approached the girl, touched her inappropriately and fled the scene, police said.
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, who asked for the public's help in catching the suspect, said he may weigh as much as 400 pounds.
“He was in a store and he approached this young woman and grabbed her and touched her inappropriately,” he said.
The girl didn't suffer any injuries in the incident.
