Cops are searching for a creep who allegedly followed a woman into her Williamsburg apartment building, grabbed her buttocks, and ran off.

Police said the man shadowed the woman into her apartment building at about noon on April 18. He then got into the elevator and waited for her as she checked her mail before striking up a conversation with her. When she went to leave the building after checking her mail, he followed her out, grabbed her butt, and ran off.

Police collected surveillance photos and videos of the suspect, who they describe as a bald man who is about 5-foot-10 and weighs about 170 pounds.

Law enforcement officials ask people with information about the man’s identity to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text-message them to 274637, then enter “TIP577.”
