The NYPD is looking for a man who allegedly grabbed a woman’s behind inside a Flushing train station last week.

On Monday, July 13, around 8:23 p.m., a 29-year-old woman was walking down a set of stairs inside the Main Street 7 train station when an unknown man approached her from behind and grabbed her buttocks, according to the police.

The man than ran out of the station and off in an unknown direction, cops said.

The suspect is described as being around 25 years old, standing 5 feet 7 inches, to around 5 feet 10 inches, according to the NYPD. He was last seen wearing a Yankees hat, a white shirt, purple sweatpants and white sneakers.

Earlier on Monday, July 13, a man wearing a nearly identical outfit groped a 54-year-old woman who was riding down an escalator inside the 74th Street-Roosevelt Avenue subway station.

Police could not confirm if the two cases were connected.
