A Hispanic suspect in Sunset Park's recent groping has been arrested
Police have charged 26-year old Adolfo Martinez with forcible touching and sexual abuse after Martinez groped an 18-year old woman near a subway station. Police initially ruled out the possibility that the attack was a part of the series of sexual assaults that have taken place in Brooklyn neighborhoods. However, authorities are now saying it is indeed possible and that Martinez fits the geographical pattern. Recently, Federico Chamorro Yax was arrested for a similar assault where he attacked two women also in Sunset Park. He is also being tied to a September 2011 attack where he forced his hand up a woman's skirt near his Bensonhurst home.
