JACKSON HEIGHTS — The NYPD was searching for a suspect who allegedly sexually assaulted a 15-year-old boy twice in Jackson Heights.
According to police, a man between the ages of 20 and 27 approached the 15-year-old boy July 3 around 11 p.m., revealed a black firearm and took the teen’s Apple iPod4.
