Police are looking for a man who grabbed a woman’s butt as she left the 6 train station at Park Avenue South and East 23rd Street.
The 26-year-old victim was walking up the stairs to leave the station when the man groped her and ran off on East 23rd Street. The incident happened on the morning of Friday, June 8, although police released the information this week.
The suspect is described as being black, 50 to 55 years of age, approximately 5’9″ to 5’11”, bald and has a slim build. He was wearing a green t-shirt, dark colored pants, tan boots, a tan hat and black sunglasses.
Police also reported two other similar groping incidents in the subway in Manhattan this week with different suspects in each case.
On Tuesday, July 3 at 6:20 a.m., a 31-year-old woman was exiting the subway at the Herald Square, when a man touched her buttocks. The victim confronted him and he ran off.
On Monday July 9, at 5:20 a.m., a man grabbed a 42-year-old woman’s buttocks at 8 Avenue and West 33rd Street, as she entered Pennsylvania Station. When she confronted him, he apologized and fled the station.
