Police need your help in finding a creep who recently groped a young woman on a residential Forest Hills street.

Law enforcement sources said the incident occurred at 3:30 p.m. on July 11 in front of a residential building located in the area of 76th Road and the Grand Central Parkway.

Authorities said that the suspect approached a 22-year-old woman from behind and squeezed her buttocks. The victim then shoved the man away from her; he subsequently fled on foot to the intersection of 76th Road and 113th Street, where he entered a black four-door sedan that sped away westbound on 113th Street.

The incident was later reported to the 112th Precinct; the woman was not injured.

On Aug. 6, the NYPD released a grainy image of the suspect, whom they described as a man wearing a dark colored baseball cap, a black T-shirt and green pants.

Anyone with information regarding the creep’s whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit the Crime Stoppers website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
