NEW YORK (PIX11)—Police are looking for a devious sexual predator who impersonated an NYPD officer and ordered a young boy into his van, where he sexually assaulted him.
On Friday at 9:30 a.m. the man approached a 15-year-old boy who had littered an empty bag of chips on the subway platform at the 53rd St. and 4th Ave. station. The suspect, dressed in street clothes, displayed a police shield and told the boy to come with him. The boy followed the suspect to a parked white van, according to police.
He then drove to 92nd St. and Dahlgren Place and parked the van and grabbed a syringe from the back of the vehicle. According to police, the suspect then told the boy he would inject him with a knockout drug unless the boy performed oral sex on him. The man then sexually assaulted and sodomized his young victim before dropping him off at 38th St. and 4th Ave.
The suspect is described as a 45 to 49-year-old white male, 5'8" and 145 lbs. He has a bald head, grey mustache and a mole under the left side of his lip.
Anyone with information in regards to this sexual assault is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
