The NYPD is looking for the man wanted in connection with a criminal sex act in Richmond Hill last weekend.

On Sunday, at approximately 2:30 p.m., the suspect, described as a black man in his 20s driving an SUV, approached a 12-year-old girl near the corner of Lincoln Street and 116th Avenue, got outside of his vehicle, engaged her in conversation and had her enter his vehicle.

After the girl got in, the suspect allegedly drove to a nearby location where he exposed himself to her and committed a criminal sex act. The victim then exited the vehicle, and ran to the nearby house of a friend, who called 911. The girl was removed to Queens General Hospital Center where she was treated and released.

The suspect is described as being about 6 feet tall, weighing 200 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes and a scruffy beard. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a white undershirt, red jacket, red sneakers, a red and white baseball cap with a silver chain hanging to his waist. He was driving a silver, 4-door SUV at the time of the attack.
