On Friday, a Park Slope man initially arrested for groping at least three women in Manhattan between February and March of this year was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court. 26 year-old Slope resident and Bible Study host Karl Vanderwoude is being charged with two counts of forcible touching and third-degree sexual abuse.
Via the NY Daily News:
He was charged with grabbing a 19-year-old woman’s buttocks on Feb. 27 at Second Ave. and E. 67th St.
Then on March 30, he touched the buttocks of a 22-year-old woman at Centre and Chambers Sts. near City Hall and appeared to use his cell phone to record images under her skirt, according to the criminal complaint.
The defense lawyer said the district attorney’s office declined to prosecute a third charge filed by cops. Vanderwoude initially was charged in a Feb. 26 groping.
