Man molests juvenile at gunpoint near Bailey Avenue

A man pulled a gun on a juvenile, forced him into a secluded area off Bailey Avenue and molested him early Friday morning.

Buffalo Police said the victim told them he was approached between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. by a man riding a red bicycle who displayed a silver handgun and told the victim to “Follow me.”

The suspect took the victim across the street to a church yard at Bailey and Collingwood Avenue, told the victim to remove his clothes, and started to take photographs of him with a blue camera. The suspect molested the youth, who at one point yelled “Stop.”

The suspect was described as a black man, about 25 to 27 years old, 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 190 pounds, with a beard; he was wearing a black, red, yellow and blue shirt and had on a black hat, black pants and black and white sneakers. He had a book bag and a carry-on bag.

After molesting the youth, he got on his bike and rode away, police said.
