Police Search For Bronx Groping Suspect

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NYPD is asking for the public’s help in identifying and finding a man wanted for forcible touching.

Police said the victim, a 25-year-old woman, was walking up the stairs to the downtown “D” subway train platform at East Kingsbridge Road and Grand Concourse when she was approached from behind by the suspect.

The man allegedly lifted her dress and touched her rear end before running back down the stairs.

Police say the groping happened on December 14 around 7:30 p.m.

The suspect is described as an Hispanic man between the ages of 25 and 30, standing 6’0″ and dressed in an oversized, navy blue bubble-style coat, faded blue jeans, and a dark-colored do-rag beneath a Russian-style fur hat with brown fur trimming.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). Tips can also be submitted to the Crime stoppers website or by texting 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

    We’re hearing about more reports of sexual battery on the NYC transit now, and I hope that doesn’t reflect a real increase. It might help if the people who are convicted of the crimes receive the maximum sentence. Maybe some of these guys like the idea of being shown in surveillance photos in news reports. If the media continue to follow these stories after arrests are made and the assailants are treated severely by the court, that might make the crime less glamorous.

    Man, can’t these petty criminals show some originality? How many copycat gropers does this city need? Ever since the Park Slope/Sunset Park incidents, these lame wannabes just multiply. I guess some are just doomed to mediocrity, no matter what paths they choose. 😦
