ASTORIA — A bicyclist groped three women over a two-week stretch in the neighborhood earlier this month, police said.

The first incident was on April 2, when he approached a 33-year-old woman near 34th Avenue and 34th Street and grabbed her butt about 11 a.m. then pedaled away, the NYPD said.

On April 15, he went up to a 29-year-old woman near 35th Avenue and 41st Street, smacked her butt with his hand and took off about 8:45 p.m. and took off, police said.

The next day, he did the same thing to a 30-year-old woman on 34th Street and 36th Avenue around 11 a.m., the NYPD said.

The suspect is described as 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-8 with a medium to stocky build. He was last seen wearing a light blue raincoat and a light blue and white baseball cap.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
