Police are investigating an alleged groping incident in Park Slope in which officers allegedly let the groping suspect go free.
Investigators say a 22-year-old woman was fondled while walking along 16th Street in Park Slope early Wednesday morning.
According to a witness, a neighbor chased the attacker to a nearby intersection but police let him go because the victim was no longer at the scene.
"I was just (beep) off that the cops didn't do anything about the guy," said Donald Harrington, the witness. "They came up here, I told them where the girl was and they just kept on going. They said they had no victim even though we call them back. We took the girl down we spoke to the police and they said the guy didn't want to be questioned so they let him go."
The suspect is said to be in his 40s.
The NYPD won't comment on allegations officers let the suspect go but said they are investigating the entire incident.
