Police are asking for the public’s assistance in finding a man who is wanted for forcibly touching a woman on an Astoria street in December.

On Dec. 18 at approximately 11:05 p.m. the suspect approached a 31-year-old woman in front of an apartment building at Ditmars Boulevard and 38th Street. He then put his hand up the woman’s skirt and touched her “private parts,” police said.
