Pedophile Still on the Loose After Molesting 8-Year-Old Girl on Essex Street

This creepy pedophile is still on the loose.

Cops continue to pursue a man wanted in connection with the molestation of an 8-year-old girl on Essex Street last Saturday afternoon.

On June 3, at around 7:40pm, the suspect approached the girl who was in the courtyard of the Seward Park Extension at 64 Essex Street. Police said that the man, believed to be in his twenties, proceeded to grab the girl’s crotch “over her clothes” before running off.

The suspect is described as a black male between the ages of 20 and 30, standing 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a blue baseball cap, sunglasses, a wrist watch, and a white “NY Loves Hillary” t-shirt.

There is a $2,500 reward for information leading to his arrest.

In the meantime, the standard wanted posters are now joined by a plethora of printouts courtesy of the so-called Guardian Angels and their “Perv Busters,” a vigilante group whose mission is to, in part, find and shame perverts (mostly on the subway).
