BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- A mother is speaking out after her 12-year-old twin daughters came to her two months after being groped on an MTA bus in Brooklyn — in hopes police will get the suspect off the streets.
"Both of them were crying, they don't sleep — they were shaking," the mother said of her girls when they told her about the shocking incident. "They don't want to talk because they feel guilty and embarrassed about it.
The mother and girls' identities has been concealed by PIX11 News for safety.
Police say the man, who regularly takes the B1 MTA bus, repeatedly grabbed the girls' buttocks between September and November 2017 as they were on their way to school.
The mother told PIX11 News the girls would move seats on the bus and the man would follow them.
The man is accused of groping the children on “numerous occasions” during those three months.
