A creep molested a 9-year-old girl whom he targeted as she threw out the trash in an East Harlem NYCHA complex, cops said.
The girl was bringing the garbage to a chute inside a building within the Taft Houses on Madison Avenue near East 112th Street around 7:45 p.m. Thursday when a man approached and took her to an undisclosed secluded spot, police said.
There, he touched her inappropriately before taking off, police said.
The girl was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was treated and released.
The suspect was still on the loose Friday morning.
