A Stuyvesant Town resident was arrested for forcible touching and sexual abuse in a Stuy Town laundry room in the early hours of last Friday morning.
Jason Wilner, 27, was arrested at 449 East 14th Street on January 15 at 1:41 a.m. after allegedly groping another resident while she was doing laundry.
The victim told police that she was folding her clothes in the building’s laundry room when Wilner approached her, put his right arm around her and allegedly grabbed her buttocks. She said that she told Wilner to stop but he allegedly continued to touch her and grabbed her buttocks at least two more times.
“The safety and security of our residents is a priority for management,” Senior Vice President of Global Public Affairs Paula Chirhart said regarding the incident. “Management and public safety are fully cooperating with the NYPD on this incident. We will not allow for any behavior that puts resident safety at risk.”
Wilner’s lawyer did not return a request for comment.
