THE SEWARD PARK LIBRARY INCIDENT

I follow a blog called "Angry Asian Man".  I read a recent post which made me a very angry Asian Woman.


On May 6th, a nine year old girl was sexually assaulted in the Seward Park Library.

The 9-year-old Asian girl, who is not being identifed to protect her identity, says she left her mother for a moment to grab a book off a shelf. She knelt down in the aisle to read the book when a man approached her:

"He asked me what color was my underwear," she said. "Then he asked to see my underwear and I didn't let him see it."

Stunned by the stranger's question, the girl did not react. Within seconds she said the man groped her and then forced her to grope him. He stopped she said when he thought someone saw him.

"I ran to my mom. I was crying," she said, "And told her that a stranger was touching me and stuff"

This bold assault happened in the children's section of the library's second floor, which has become a sanctuary for many schoolchildren who go there to study and do homework.

The young girl's mother was on the second floor as well. When her daughter walked away, she assumed it was safe. But after what happened to her daughter, she was shocked to learn that there are no security cameras.

"I'm very upset there are no cameras," said the mother. "Because it is very hard to find this guy."

Police released a sketch of the suspect and described him as a white male in his mid-40s, approximately 5-foot-9 to 6 feet tall, with a medium build, and short salt-and-pepper hair. He was wearing a black t-shirt, shorts, a grey cap, and he was carrying a black bag with a strap.

Anyone with information about this crime should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). You can also submit a tip by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. Tipsters can remain anonymous
