Police are searching for a man wanted for a forcible touching incident that took place earlier this month at the Nassau Avenue G train station.

Around 5:15 p.m. on Feb. 11, the suspect followed a 28-year-old woman down the stairs of the subway station and, from behind, reached around and fondled her groin area, police said.

The woman then shoved the assailant against a wall, causing him to flee up to the street before heading westbound on Nassau Avenue.

The suspect is described as Hispanic, approximately 25 years old, and 5 feet 3 inches in height. He was last seen wearing a dark colored knit cap, a gray or green jacket, light blue and black jeans, boots, and carrying a black backpack.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit

Probably find him at the local shelter! And No we dont need more police presence we need the current police to do foot patrol instead of driving around in SUV vehicles!

These sexual assaults are a sign that we need more police protection! The MTA also needs to have someone in every station. Time to take our tax dollars out of the rich man’s pockets and provide services for the folks who use mass transit.

If NYC would allow concealed carry, he would most likely not got away and now be a danger to somone else!
