The NYPD Harbor Unit saved a stranded 19-year-old who was injured and suffering from hypothermia in Coney Island’s waters Saturday.

The marine unit responded after a 7pm 911 call for a drowning man. They found the man stuck on a cluster of rocks approximately 600 feet away from the sands. With four foot waves violently crashing into the rocks, the man was unable to get off the jetty by himself.

Fortunately, three officers with a combined 34 years of experience were there to help. Officer Peter Jessnick pulled the boat in close despite the rough waters. Officers Dianna Belioni and Thomas Carrol called out to the man and threw him a life ring.

Once the distressed swimmer got the ring, officers were able to pull him aboard and treated him for hypothermia.

They brought him to Kingsborough Community College, where the FDNY has a dock and marine base. EMS took him to Coney Island Hospital, where he was treated for hypothermia and bruising to his body, and is expected to make a full recovery.

Police have released a photo of a man accused of exposing himself on the D train, the second such bulletin to go out in a week.

The alleged miscreant was riding a Coney Island-bound D train on Friday, August 1, when he revealed himself to a 58-year-old woman. The victim pulled something out as well: a cell phone, with which she napped a photo before he bolted from the train at the Pacific Street subway station.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5’10”, approximately 185 lbs with salt and pepper hair. He was last seen wearing a light gray sweatshirt and yellow construction boots.

Last week police distributed cellphone video taken by a victim of a similar incident, also on a Coney Island-bound D train. In that mid-July incident, an Asian man in his 40s began to fondle himself.

Over the weekend, cops released video of another creep accused of approaching local women from behind, grabbing their rumps and running off.

Cops are looking to identify a perv they say groped women in two separate incidents in the Bensonhurst area.

In both cases, the creep came up behind his female victims and grabbed their buttocks and private areas before dashing off on foot.

The first victim was a 31-year-old woman. The suspect struck as she entered her apartment building on August 10 at approximately 9:05 p.m., attacking her and fleeing. Police would not give the location of the incident, although it happened within the 62nd Precinct. The suspect was caught on security camera as he fled the building.

The second victim was attacked a day later, on August 11, at approximately 10:20 p.m. The 34-year-old victim was walking in front of 1839 Bath Avenue when she was grabbed from behind and groped.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 20s.
