Cops busted a 26-year-old man for allegedly sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl in Crown Heights.

The victim’s mother told police her daughter was at home at 5 pm on May 16, when the suspect led her to an outdoor basement stairwell and put his mouth on her genitals, according to a law-enforcement source.

Authorities arrested the man outside his Troy Avenue home between Carroll and Crown streets the next day, booking him on charges of criminal sex abuse of a child, officials said.

The girl received treatment at a nearby hospital following the incident, and has since been released, police said.

But she may not be the suspect’s only victim, according to cops, who believe he may have abused other children, and urged anyone who recognizes the man to report any other alleged crimes.

Anyone with information in regard to any incidents involving the aforementioned individual is asked to call the NYPD’s 24-hour rape hotline at (212) 267–7273. All calls are kept strictly confidential.

Reach reporter Colin Mixson at or by calling (718) 260-4505.

Why no name for the 26 year old perv? If you know his age, surely you also likely know his identity. Do you want this guy apprehended or not? If so, his name would be helpful.

His name is Henry Ford and he lives in Bay Ridge Brooklyn.
