Police are looking for a man who grabbed a woman’s butt while riding a Flushing-bound 7 train last week.
On Sept. 27 at 5:10 p.m., a 30-year-old woman was riding on the 7 train. Throughout the ride, she felt an unknown man continuously touching her buttocks.
When the train arrived at the Mets-Willets Point subway station, the suspect left the train to parts unknown.
The suspect is described as a 55-year-old Indian man with a medium complexion, brown eyes, and black hair, standing 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing 240 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray and white striped shirt.
It’s the second time this week that the NYPD has released images of a perpetrator wanted for lewd behavior on the 7 line. Police are also looking for a man who was caught touching himself on the train while leering at female passengers earlier this summer.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or for Spanish 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
