Mohawk-sporting sex assault suspect arrested
FORT HAMILTON (WABC) -- Police have arrested an accused sexual predator who allegedly groped a teenager at a subway station in Brooklyn.
Police say the man was recognizable by his unique mohawk-style hairdo and was quickly arrested following a tip called in to the Crime Stoppers hotline.
Authorities say the man walked up behind a 15-year-old girl at the Fort Hamilton Parkway N train station in Sunset Park late in the afternoon on May 31. He allegedly sexually assaulted her and then ran off.
Detectives will put him in lineups Thursday afternoon. No charges were immediately filed. ---
