BROOKLYN - Police say four teenagers are wanted in at least four separate forcible touching incidents on the same day.

The latest incident occurred at Fifth and Flatbush avenues at around 9 a.m. Friday. Investigators say that as a woman walked down the street, one of the suspects rode up to her on a bike and grabbed her buttocks. It marked the fourth incident that day.

About an hour earlier, a 33-year-old woman was walking on Tillary Street when the suspects rode up to her on bikes and grabbed her breasts and buttocks.

Another incident occurred five minutes later, when police say another woman was walking into a diner on Adams Street. They say one of the suspects rode up and groped her.

A 31-year-old woman also had her buttocks grabbed on Bergen Street at around 8:30 a.m.

The NYPD's 78th and 84th precincts are investigating the incidents.
