Be On The Lookout in McGolrick Park

by GWAPP on

Thanks to an anonymous community member for submitting this Community News item about a person of serious concern in McGolrick Park:

“Two nights ago a friend of mine was followed into Msgr. McGolrick Park by a homeless man who exposed himself and began masturbating. When she tried to leave the park, he followed her out of the park and kept following until he saw her on her phone calling the police. This man is not ‘harmless’ as some people have claimed he is and needs to be locked up where he cannot do this to anyone else (or anyone’s wife, mother, daughter, etc.). The police are looking for him but until he is found, keep an eye out for a Hispanic man, approx 30-40 yrs old, thin build, wears an over sized green (or plaid) jacket, he has short dark hair, approx 5’9″ tall. He may come up to you and ask you for a cigarette, for money, or what time it is and he smells bad. He seems to target women walking by themselves with dogs. I was followed by this creep once down Sutton street and crossed the street, and stood there glaring at him with my dog growling at him until he went back the way he came from. He has been known to sit in the park by himself at night (around 10pm) over by the benches on Driggs Ave. side, near Monitor St.

He may be known to people who live in the neighborhood, he has been seen walking up and down Kingsland Ave and Sutton Street and down Nassau Avenue. If anyone knows who this man is, they should contact the 94th Precinct at 718-383-5298. If he approaches you, call 911 and tell them that the man who has been exposing himself in the park is there now so they can make an arrest. If anyone is interested in forming a neighborhood/park watch until this man is caught, send me a message.”
