The NYPD is seeking a man who allegedly followed an elderly woman into the elevator in her Bronx apartment building earlier this month, exposed himself, and masturbated in front of her.

According to the NYPD, the man followed the 75-year-old woman as she entered the elevator on the first floor of her apartment building, around 4:00 p.m. on July 6th.

Surveillance footage shows the man stopping the elevator door from closing, and then entering behind the suspect, who is blurred out. He allegedly began exposing himself and masturbating as he entered the elevator. According to the NYPD, once the door was closed, he "approached" the victim and "continued to masturbate in front of her." Surveillance footage also shows the suspect exiting the elevator, and running away.


The suspect is described as a black man in his 20s, approximately 6 feet tall, with short hair. He was last scene wearing dark sweatpants and black shoes.
