Police are searching for a Bronx pastor they say kissed an 11-year-old girl while giving her a piano lesson in his Fordham Heights apartment.

The NYPD on Thursday released an image of the clergyman, who authorities said runs a church out of that same Creston Avenue apartment, near the Grand Councourse.

The pastor, whose real name is not known to police, fled the area after the girl told her parents about the unwanted kisses on her face and mouth. The incident happened about 4:30 p.m. on July 22., police said

The victim’s mother and father were in the next room at the time and heard her scream, authorities said.

Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
