The dreaded incident occurred around 2:00pm Friday afternoon, as a young girl had gotten into an elevator in the building where she lived.

A black male, who appeared to be in his 20’s, entered the elevator behind her and began inappropriately touching and assaulting her.

The girl quickly fled the elevator, and upon entering her house, told her father what happened.

Her father went looking for the man, and found him still in the building. He called Crown Heights Shomrim, whos fast response kept the man from fleeing the building. 911 was called, and a Police car flagged down.

The man was taken into custody by the NYPD.

    YES agree, thankyou Shomrim.
    we hope that the community does our part too, since upholding the Rebbe’s advice also helps. Ahavas Yisroel, and many other directives.
