NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a woman jogging in New York City's Central Park was confronted by a group of teenagers who asked her for a kiss, and 1 of them groped her when she rebuffed them.
Police were seeking the accused groper Saturday. He's believed to be about 14.
Police say the 24-year-old woman was running near the northern edge of the park around 8:30 p.m. Friday when five teens approached her seeking a kiss. Officers say one teen then touched her groin and ran off.
Women's safety in the iconic park has been a hot-button subject since an investment banker was raped while running there in 1989. Her ordeal became known as the "Central Park jogger" case.
This September, a man was charged with raping a 73-year-old birdwatcher in the park.
