A group of pervy punks went on a groping spree in Prospect Heights and Downtown last Friday morning, according to police.

Cops say the debauched delinquents peddled around the nabes on their bikes, grabbing the breasts and butts of four women between 7:50 am and 9:10 am on July 10.

The teens attacked a 33-year-old woman on Tillary Street between Jay Street and Flatbush Avenue Extension and a woman walking on Adams Street between Tillary Street and Red Cross Place within five minutes of each other, cops said. The deviants then struck again half an hour later, grabbing a 31-year-old woman on Bergen Street between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues, and groped their final victim a half-hour after that, attacking a 29-year-old woman at Fifth and Flatbush avenues shortly after 9 am, according to a report.

Authorities have released a photo and footage of several teens who they believe were involved in the groping.

Police ask anyone with information regarding the attacks to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
