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 www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
