Ops Hunt Bo-Cutter Pervert

By Liz Goff
Police are searching for a man who threatened a 20-year-old woman with a box cutter on a Long Island City street last month.

Cops said the woman was walking on 43rd Avenue at about 6:40 p.m. on December 19, when the pervert approached her from behind and restrained her with his arm around her shoulders.

When the woman pushed him away, the man threatened to “slice” her with the box cutter, and ordered her to walk with him, police said.

When a passing motorist saw what was happening he asked the woman if she was OK, police said.  The woman screamed, and the suspect fled the scene in an unknown direction, police said.

Police are urging anyone with information to call the CrimeStoppers HOTLINE at 1-800-577-TIPS or click on www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
