The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is looking for a man who allegedly groped a girl, 5, and exposed himself to her Tuesday.

Cops said that the young girl was in Go Easy Laundry, a Brooklyn laundromat, on Ralph Avenue near Farragut Road in East Flatbush. The suspect approached her around 11 a.m. there, reported New York Daily News. The young victim was with her mother when he went towards her. Once he reached near the girl, he forcibly grabbed the young child's rear end, police said, according to NBC New York. After the man allegedly exposed himself to the girl, he told her not to say anything to her mother, who was standing nearby. Then the sick man left the laundromat.

No physical injuries were reported, but police released photos of the suspect on Instagram.

Cops are still looking to track down the man. In surveillance images, he was seen wearing white slippers, a blue long-sleeved shirt and matching shorts. Police asked anyone with information related to the suspect, who photos were released, to call Crime Stoppers.

This comes just days after a 55-year-old man was arrested in Manhattan for a string of groping attacks in Manhattan, reported New York Daily News. Scott Blake’s latest arrest happened on Aug. 24, and it was for a series of July incidents. At the time, he allegedly approached several women from behind and grabbed their buttocks before running away. Police said that Blake was charged with seven counts of forcible touching, one count of stalking and four counts of sexual abuse.

Before this, he was arrested on Aug. 8. The arrest was for menacing some women and forcibly touching others (seven victims in total) outside the New York Public Library in Midtown that same day itself. He was arrested after he tried to escape from cops. At the time, police had not identified him as the person of interest for the string of almost identical July attacks, and so, he was released. It was not clear why he was let go by cops. After he was set free, police linked him to the earlier cases. Then the NYPD warrant squad arrested him again in Lower Manhattan on Aug. 24.
