Police are looking for a man who they say forcibly touched and exposed himself to a 16-year-old girl in Jamaica.

On Aug. 13 at about 7:30 a.m. the victim was walking down the staircase at the Parsons Boulevard and Hillside Avenue subway station when she saw the suspect — described as a Hispanic man in his mid 30s — who reached up her thigh and legs, police said.

The teen screamed and walked away but as she looked back she saw the suspect exposing himself and performing a lewd act, according to cops. The victim was not physically injured.

Police describe the suspect as standing 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighing between 130 and 140 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a dark colored T-shirt with a gray design on it, gray knee-length shorts, and a plain white baseball hat, and was carrying a backpack.
