The NYPD say multiple suspects are wanted in two separate incidents of sexual assault on minors in Brooklyn.
The first incident took place on the corner of St. Paul's Court and Church Avenue Saturday just before 7 p.m. Police say a man walked up to a 12-year-old girl, grabbed her backside and ran off. He was last seen wearing a camouflage shirt and headphones. Fortunately, she was not injured.
The second incident happened just two hours later around 9 p.m. in East New York. Police say an 11-year-old girl was walking near Warwick Street and New Lots Avenue when she was approached by a man and a woman.
Authorities say the man grabbed the young girl's chest, then the pair ran off.
Anyone with information about either of the sexual assaults is asked to call police.
