Cops hunt pervert who groped girls in Bensonhurst

Creep: Police say this man groped an 11-year-old girl in Bensonhurst on March 4.

Police are searching for the creep who they said groped two young girls in Bensonhurst this month.

The pervert attacked an 11-year-old girl at 3 pm on March 4, police said. The victim was on Duryea Court between 66th and 67th streets when the lowlife grabbed her crotch and then fled, according to law enforcement sources.

Then the same man touched a 14-year-old girl just blocks away less than a week later, officials said. The girl was on 66th Street between 16th and 17th avenues at 7:20 am on March 10 when the pervy perp slipped his hand onto her thigh and then ran, police said.

Both victims refused medical attention, police reports state.

Officials are describing the assailant as a 25-year-old male standing 5-foot-3 and weighing about 160 pounds.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS, log on to www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text tips to 274637 and enter “TIP577.”
