Is this the guy? Sorry to say this but he LOOKS like a predator — although, unfortunately, one never knows what a sex fiend might look like for sure. Also, why aren’t there any reports of women groping anyone?

This is the kind of behavior that Roy Moore was doing that won him Trump’s endorsement, it shouldn’t be in Forest Hills.

Absolutely agree! Unfortunately this guy took from the playbook of that politician who lived in Forest Hills who just got out of jail for sexting underage girls in the buff while holding his son. Totally unacceptable behavior!!!!

That's a great camparison to the kind of behavior that Roy Moore was doing that won him Trump’s endorsement

Good point: Roy Moore preyed on teenagers in the mall; also other people did things in the past.

Can’t put my finger on it… But there seems to be a pattern involving these gropers. I could be wrong… but doesn’t it appear that alot of these gropers are of Swiss ancestry…But I could be mistaken
