A preteen was questioned and kissed by a strange pervert in the elevator at her Lower Manhattan apartment building, police said Wednesday.

The man asked the 12-year-old girl her age and said, “what grade are you in?” before he planted his lips on her cheek and tried to smooch her in the Smith Houses on St. James Place and Madison St. just after 8 p.m. on Aug. 29, cops said.

The creep got off the elevator on the third floor and took off, authorities said.

Police have released a video of the man on Wednesday and ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
