MOUNT HOPE -

Police are searching for the piano teacher who allegedly kissed an underage girl.

According to police, the 11-year-old victim was taking a piano lesson inside an apartment used as a place of worship in a complex along Creston Avenue and 181st Street.

News 12 is told the man was teaching the girl her first lesson around 4:30 p.m. in July when he’s suspected of taking advantage of her. During that lesson, News 12 is told he allegedly kissed the little girl on the mouth and face.

Afterward, she told a family member and once her parents were informed they filled a report.

The super of the building tells News 12 the man police are searching for actually lives here, but hasn't been back for weeks.

Authorities say they are having a hard time tracking him down, because they say his name on Facebook is fake.

Tenants coming out of the complex told News 12 he's often seen walking around the neighborhood or in a near by community center.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
