Astoria, NY — Two questions: Do you resemble the fella in the sketch to the left? Do you frequent public libraries and have a thing for little feet? If so, the police would like to have a word with you, ya sicko.
Police are looking for an alleged foot fetishist after a 7-year-old girl reported being accosted and sniffed in the children’s section of the Queens Library in Astoria last month.
According to the kiddo, she was just sitting there on the floor minding her own business when a strange man approached her and attempted to make small talk before yanking off her shoes and fondling her feet, rubbing them on his face.
“I didn’t know what to do. I was so petrified,” the girl said. “[He] Sniffed them, rubbed them against his beard, and kissed them. Did it to each foot. And then he did the same and just sniffed my flip flops.”
The alleged perv then took off while the child ran to her mother in another part of the library.
Not only is the child’s mother sickened about the entire event, she’s also quite pissed after learning that if and when the man is caught, he’s looking at nothing more than a misdemeanor.
Enter Queens Councilman Peter Vallone…
“Why is it when we catch this guy that he’s subject to a maximum eight months in jail? None of that made sense, so we’re fixing it.”
Vallone and a handful of lawmakers are now in the process of introducing a bill in Albany to make forcible touching of a minor 13 or younger a felony, punishable up to four years in jail.
The supposed weirdo is described as an Hispanic man, 35-40 years old, 170 lbs., with shaved salt and pepper colored hair. He was last seen wearing a dark colored t-shirt, blue jeans and black sneakers with a white design.
“I want him to suffer, that’s all,” the girl said of her alleged attacker. “I want him to suffer until he dies.” Heh…future Dreamin’ Demon member right there.Tags: foot fetishist, forcible touching, New York, pervert
