Two NYU students groped each other within 10 minutes as rapes escalated citywide

Two NYU students were groped within 10 minutes of each other while walking through Washington Square Park this week, the school’s security team reported in a campus security alert.

In the first incident, a twisted attacker grabbed a student’s butt around 8:30 p.m. Monday. The second student was grabbed by the thigh, the school said.

The creep pulled down one of the victim’s shorts as she ran away, said NYPD officials who confirmed the incidents Monday night in the neighborhood’s 6th Ward.

One of the victims said the unprovoked attacker was homeless.

The disturbing incidents come amid a 25 percent increase in the number of reported rapes this year compared to the same time last year — 10 out of 8 — and a 10 percent increase in rapes citywide — 1,151 versus 1,042 — NYPD -Data shows as of September 11th.

Of the 1,151 rapes, 629 (55%) involved “acquaintances”; 455 (39%) were “domestic” in nature and 67 (6%) were committed by a “stranger,” the NYPD said.

“There is no fear of the criminal justice system — especially in Manhattan in DA Alvin Bragg’s world,” said former NYPD Sgt. Joseph Giacalone, now a professor of criminal justice at John Jay College.

“Washington Square Park is pretty much left to decay, and all kinds of people have taken refuge in the park: criminals, drug addicts, you name it. Shootings and homicides are down, but everything else is off the charts,” he said.

NYU said it had been reporting unsafe conditions to police officers for months.

“We, along with other park neighbors and other NYC universities, have been sharing our concerns with city officials for several months,” NYU spokesman John Beckman said. Two NYU students groped each other within 10 minutes as rapes escalated citywide
