Man shakes teen girl in New Hyde Park: police

Nassau County police are seeking a man who they say grabbed and shook a teenage girl Sunday afternoon in North New Hyde Park.

The man approached the 16-year-old girl from behind at 2:50 p.m. while they were walking south on New Hyde Park Road near the Lake Success Shopping Center, police said.

The man’s intentions were unclear, but he grabbed the girl, spun her around and pushed her to the ground, then lifted her up and started shaking her while saying, “Come here,” police said.

The man, whose face was mostly covered by the hooded sweatshirt he was wearing, ran north on New Hyde Park Road after the girl started to scream and another woman came to help her, police said.

The girl suffered minor scratches to her arm but refused medical attention, police said.

The suspect is described as a black man between 30 and 40 years old, standing at least 6 feet tall with a stocky build, police said. 

He was wearing a black hoodie with a paint splatter design and light-colored blue jeans, police said.

Anyone with information about the crime can call 1-800-244-8477 to leave an anonymous tip.
