Police released on Saturday video footage of a man whom they say molested a 37-year-old woman near a Jackson Heights intersection last month.

Authorities said the incident occurred at 5:40 p.m. on June 25 in the vicinity of 77th Street and Roosevelt Avenue.

According to law enforcement sources, the perpetrator approached the woman from behind and grabbed her buttocks. He then fled the scene in an unknown direction.

The incident was later reported to the 115th Precinct.

Police describe the suspect as a black man between 20 and 25 years of age, standing 6 feet tall and weighing 175 pounds with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a blue Chicago Cubs jersey with the number 23 on the back.
