Cops need the public’s help in finding a pervert who groped a woman at the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue subway station last month.

The NYPD released on June 13 a security camera image of the suspect who attacked a 19-year-old woman on the Manhattan-bound platform near the E/F/M/R line at 10:20 a.m. on May 19.

According to law enforcement sources, the victim was waiting for the train when the perpetrator grabbed her buttocks, then reached under her jacket and grabbed her shirt.

After a Manhattan-bound E train arrived, both the victim and suspect boarded. Seconds later, police said, the creep again grabbed the woman’s butt.

The victim departed the train at the 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal station in Manhattan, but the perpetrator remained on board, authorities said.

Police described the suspect as a white or Hispanic man in his late 30s or early 40s who stands about 5 feet 4 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a dark blue bubble jacket and tan slacks while carrying a backpack.
