GROPER TARGETING NEW JERSEY GIRLS
Since August 1, six teens have reported being groped by an assailant who sneaks up on young girls and grabs their breasts before running away. Four incidences occurred in Leonia and two in Palisades Park. In one of the Palisades Park incidents, the assailant tried to force the girl to the ground but she broke free and ran for help. The assailant is described as a dark-skinned man, between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot-7, with short, dark hair and a muscular build. In two of the incidents, he spoke in Spanish.
