Arrest made in Park Slope groping case

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The NYPD has arrested a man in connection with the groping of at least three girls in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn.

Jesse Dailey, 34, of Brooklyn, faces several charges including sex abuse, forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child. In addition, Dailey is accused of injuring an NYPD detective who attempted to arrest him on Monday night.

The detective who suffered a shoulder injury during the incident tried to apprehend a man that fit the description of the groper. Cops say the man got away along 5th Ave. between 8th and 9th streets.

A person of interest was brought in for questioning by police on Wednesday. The NYPD announced an arrest on Thursday morning.

In the most recent groping incident, an 11-year-old girl was walking in front of 397 4th Street on Nov. 11 when the man approached her from behind and squeezed her buttocks.

On Sept. 20, a 10-year-old girl and her 11-year-old female friend were walking along 5th Ave. when the suspect brushed up and rubbed against her before squeezing the buttocks of her friend, said police.

Two sketches of the suspect were released by the NYPD. He was described by police as a white male, 25-35 years old, 5'9- 5'11" tall with a slim build.

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
