7 year old girl reports sex assault at Palisades Center mall


WEST NYACK — A seven-year-old girl reported that she was sexually assaulted Friday by a man who followed her into a restroom in a movie theater at the Palisades Center mall.

Clarkstown police said that the attack took place around 2:30 p.m. in a stall in the women’s restroom at the AMC Loews Palisades Center, a large theater located on the fourth floor of the mall.

They are searching for a suspect described as a white man in his 40s with glasses. The man was holding a Christmas-type shopping bag and had his pants tucked into his shoes, the child told authorities.

The girl was taken to a local hospital where she was being evaluated and treated, police said.

There were no witnesses to the attack, police said.

Police do not know how the man would have gotten into the woman’s restroom without anyone noticing.

Clarkstown police are asking anyone with information to contact them at 845-639-5800.
