These two men allegedly groped young women along the 7 line in Jackson Heights and Woodside in two separate incidents this month, according to police.

Detectives are looking for two men who molested women in separate incidents along the 7 line in Jackson Heights and Woodside this month.

Police said the first incident occurred at 8:45 p.m. on Dec. 8 at the Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue station on the 7 line.

According to authorities, the 20-year-old female victim was on her way out of the station when the creep approached her from behind and grabbed her buttocks. He was last seen heading for the Manhattan-bound 7 train platform.

The NYPD later obtained security camera footage of the perpetrator, who’s described as a black or Hispanic male between 25 and 35 years of age, standing 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing about 155 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray jacket, a gray hat and blue jeans.

Cops said the second incident took place at 8:37 a.m. on board a Manhattan-bound 7 train approaching the Woodside-61 Street station.

According to law enforcement sources, the creep in this episode groped a 15-year-old girl in her private area. The girl departed the 7 train at the Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue stop in Long Island City, while the suspect remained on board the train.

Police later obtained a cellphone photo of the suspect, who’s described as a Hispanic man in his 30s, standing 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.

Anyone with information regarding the incidents or the suspects’ whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit the Crime Stoppers website, send a direct message to the Crime Stoppers Twitter page (@NYPDTips) or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
