Police seek 3 suspects in alleged sex assault

Police are searching for three suspects wanted in connection with an alleged sexual assault in the Grand Concourse area.

Investigators say a male teen lured a 15-year-old girl into a courtyard near Grand Concourse and McClellan Street and forced her to perform a sex act last Wednesday. According to authorities, the male teen told the 15-year-old he would help retrieve her cell phone, which had been stolen by a man and a 17-year-old girl earlier that day.

Police say the male teen is between 17 and 19 years old, between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall and has a stocky build.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
