NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - The NYPD is searching for a man they say sexually abused a 15-year-old girl in Harlem on July 27.
Authorities say the victim was at a baseball field on Ward's Island taking a break from skateboarding when she was approached by the suspect. After a short conversation, the suspect grabbed the victim as she attempted to walk away, grabbed her neck and forcibly inserted his fingers in her vagina.
