Spunky Senior Thwarts Attack

Police last week arrested a 37-year-old homeless man who allegedly followed an elderly Astoria woman into her apartment building on April 3 and touched her leg.

Cops said Basillios Limberis followed the 76-year-old woman into the building on 25th Avenue near 44th Street at about 8:40 a.m. on April 3 and brushed his hand across her leg..

The spunky senior screamed for Lumberis to stop, sending him running from the building, police said.

Lamberis was arrested on April 5 and charged with forcible touching and trespassing at his arraignment at Queens Criminal Court.
