Police are looking for a man they said groped two young sisters in Brooklyn last Friday night.

The incident happened around 7 p.m., when a 6-year-girl and her 8-year-old sister were in front of an apartment building near Eighth Avenue and 50th Street in Sunset Park.

Authorities say the suspect walked up to them and touched the 6-year-old on her groin area and the 8-year on her buttocks while trying to remove their pants.

The girls started screaming, and the suspect ran away.
