Sources tell TLS at approximately 2 PM this afternoon, a man walked into the 14th Street area Shul during a Simcha, and attempted to assault the approximately eight and 10-year-old girls in the basement, possibly exposing himself in the process.
The girls ran off crying to their parents, who immediately phoned police.
“The girls were crying hysterically,” a neighbor told TLS.
The suspect is described a Hispanic male, who fled the scene.
Lakewood’s Detective Bureau and Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene for the investigation.
A similar incident occurred in the area last year.
Police say they’re actively investigating the incident.
