(Scroll down for video) A man thought he can hide behind a mask and get away with groping women.
44-year-old Jose Vasquez of New Jersey, dressed as Woody the children’s beloved “Toy Story” character.
He then headed to the corner of Broadway and West 46th Street in New York City’s Time Square around 8:15 p.m.
While standing there, he began grabbing the backsides of women aged between 21 and 22, police said.
He was apprehended after one of the women began to “jump and scream” when she was groped, officials said.
“They asked me to grab their rear ends,” Vasquez allegedly told police in Spanish.
Vasquez was charged with forcible touching of the woman as well as sexual abuse in the third degree.
Vasquez is being held in lieu of $1,500 bail.
