At 3:15 a.m. Monday morning, walking along parked cars on 17th Street between 10th and 11th avenues, Flecha was stopped by police, who thought he might be trying to steal a car; Flecha was watching a pornographic video on his cell phone with his fly unzipped (according to the Times; the Post missed this detail). Flecha also had marijuana on him, for which he was arrested. Police believed he resembled one of the sex-attackers' sketches and included him a line-up out of which he was picked by the victim of a May assault on a woman at the F train's Seventh Avenue station, whose assailant groped her breasts and masturbated.
Police believe as many as four men may be responsible for the spate of attacks. No word yet on which of the several sketches police believed he resembled.
