Cops are looking for a creep who groped a young girl on two separate occasions while riding the subway in Long Island City and Manhattan.

Police said that the first incident took place on Feb. 12. At 7:15 a.m. that morning, an unidentified man approached a 13-year-old girl while onboard the 7 train. As the train approached the Queensboro Plaza station, authorities noted, the suspect touched the girl on her inner thigh.

Law enforcement sources said the second incident occurred at 7:15 a.m. on Feb. 26, when the suspect approached the same victim on a northbound 5 train as it approached the 86th Street station in Manhattan. Cops said the creep proceeded to touch the victim on her inner thigh before leaving the train at the 149th Street-Grand Concourse station in the Bronx.

Police say that the victim, who takes this commute to school in the Bronx, saw the suspect multiple times while riding the train.

At this time, sources familiar with the investigation said, it is unclear if the suspect was following the victim or if they have similar commutes.

The NYPD described the suspect as a partially bald man with a light complexion, standing between 5 feet, 8 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782).
