Police are looking for a man who rubbed himself against a female straphanger on the L train last Wednesday.
Police said the victim, a 33-year-old woman, was on the train at the First Avenue station when a man who was standing behind her forcibly rubbed himself against her buttocks. The victim then snapped a photo of the man who was sticking out his tongue before he fled the train. Police said it isn’t clear if the man was grinding against the woman with his crotch.
Update: The victim told DNAinfo he was gyrating his hips repeatedly and she could feel he was aroused.
The suspect is described as Hispanic, approximately 5’6″ with brown eyes and black hair and was last seen wearing an orange t-shirt.
