Early this morning the NYPD arrested a man in Sunset Park, who may or may not be linked to the string of sexual attacks around Brooklyn since March. 22 year-old Federico Chamorro Yax is facing charges of assault, sexual abuse and forcible touching after two recent incidents. Police say that this past Sunday Yax crept up behind a young woman on 56th street and grabbed and fondled her, but the woman struggled and scratched the man, who then fled (I reserve one "You Go Girl" fist pump per year - and I'm using it NOW).
Police allege that early this morning Yax approached another woman on 65th street and stuck his hand up her skirt. Yax himself lives on 65th street. He's currently in police custody, but no further news has been released on whether this D-bag is believed to be responsible for more attacks. We'll keep you posted!
