Contentious debate: Another serial killer wanted for allegedly groping 3 women in Manhattan
The New York Police Department is actively searching for an individual suspected of multiple sexual assaults across the city. This search follows a recent announcement by the NYPD about a separate individual involved in similar offenses.
The suspect, described as having a salt-and-pepper beard, reportedly began his series of assaults on October 15. His first known attack occurred around 9:30 a.m., when he allegedly approached a 19-year-old woman near Bryant Park, on West 40th Street and Fifth Avenue, and groped her. Following this incident, the suspect fled the scene, heading towards Sixth Avenue.
A subsequent assault attributed to the same individual took place on October 28. This time, the attack occurred inside the West 34th Street-Herald Square subway station, where he allegedly fondled another woman’s buttocks around 6:45 p.m., before escaping the area.
The most recent reported assault occurred on November 1, inside the Regal Union Square Movie Theater. At just after 2 p.m., the suspect allegedly approached a 39-year-old woman and touched her inappropriately before hastily leaving the scene.
In an effort to apprehend this individual, the NYPD has released a photo of the suspect. They are seeking the public’s help in identifying and capturing him to prevent further offenses.
This case is particularly concerning as it is not an isolated series of events in New York City. The NYPD disclosed that another individual, Feliks Kabiev, 37, is also wanted for similar acts of groping involving three separate women across Manhattan. These incidents underscore a worrying trend in the city and have prompted increased vigilance and efforts by law enforcement to address and curb such criminal behaviors.
