Public Masturbator Is Not the Park Slope Groper

10.19.11 ANIMAL

Joshua Flecha, the man caught by police jerking off to a porno on his cell phone and accused of being one of the Park Slope Gropers, has been released.

According to the NYPD, the woman who pointed him out in a line-up decided to no longer cooperate with police and subsequent line ups with other victims failed to identify Flecha as the culprit. For now, the Heartland Brewery bartender is being charged with pot possession, while the sexual assault charges have been dropped. That’s probably a small consolation now that the only thing he’s really guilty of is being a perv.
