Police: Creep groped Greenpoint dog-walker’s butt

Police are looking for a guy who they say groped a woman’s butt on a Greenpoint street while she was out walking her dog in the early morning hours of Sept. 23.

The 37-year-old victim told cops she was taking her pooch for a stroll near the intersection of Freeman Street and Manhattan Avenue at around 3 am when a creep came up and grabbed her behind.

The woman then pulled out a mace spray to defend herself, and the guy unsuccessfully tried to grab it from her hand then fled on foot, police said.

Authorities have released surveillance footage of their suspect, who they describe as a 200-pound man who was wearing a blue hoodie and jeans at the time of the attack.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto Crime Stoppers’ website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting their tips to CRIMES (274637), then entering TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
