Police arrested a guy on Wednesday night who they say groped three young girls in Park Slope since September.

Cops busted the 34-year-old at his home and slapped him with sexual assault and child endangerment charges, plus an assault rap for allegedly attacking an officer.

The alleged fiend came up behind an 11-year-old girl on a Fourth Street sidewalk near Sixth Avenue on Nov. 11 around 4:30 pm and “squeezed her buttocks” before fleeing the scene, cops said. He also supposedly groped two other girls, one 10-years-old, the other 11, on Fifth Avenue between 10th and 12th Streets on Sept. 20, according to cops.

And when an undercover detective approached the alleged serial groper on Fifth Avenue near Ninth Street on Nov. 18 to question him, he dislocated her shoulder and booked it down the street, according to multiple media reports. A good Samaritan reportedly ran after the suspect, cornered him, and took a photo of his driver’s license, which led cops to his doorstep.

All told, the alleged Slope child toucher faces two counts of sex abuse, two counts of forcible touching, and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, felony assault, resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration and assault.

Okay. Please forgive me for not knowing where to begin with this one.
First, this groper fellow dislocates SOMEONE ELSE’S SHOULDER? The article never says if she ever found it. Pardon my saying so, but this seems virtually impossible. But let's say that that's what happened, if you don't mind-okay.
Next up, we have a person chasing this alleged culprit (does HE have her shoulder?). Now-if you don't mind my pointing this out-every time that your own John Wasserman gets chased (one man's opinion coming up here by the way), John Wasserman is too busy running as fast as he can to reach into his wallet and present a valid I.D., let alone hold it steady enough for a photo moment for the benefit of the chaser.
Now, I don't want to start any trouble here on this board, but this just seems a little bit odd.
Thanks for reading.

write a proper story.

@ Homey: WHOOOOooooooah, there are not enough topless rollerbladers and stories about where to drink to suite me!!!!

Besides everyone knows BP is not a real journalistic source for information on issues or reporting hard news, so be easy on them.... we need the drinking/topless stories too!!
