Police from the 103rd Precinct in Jamaica and Transit District 20 are looking for the creep who allegedly groped a woman inside the Jamaica Center Parsons Boulevard-Archer Avenue subway station last week.

A 27-year-old woman was making her way up the escalator to the northbound E train platform just before 8:30 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 1, when a stranger approached her from behind and proceeded to press his face up against her rear end, police said.

The creep fled on foot in an unknown direction and the victim was not injured during the incident, according to authorities.

The NYPD released surveillance photos of the suspect on Sept. 7.

He has a dark complexion and medium build and is believed to be between 30 and 35 years old. He was last seen wearing a blue hooded jacket over a white shirt with black pants, white sneakers and a tan baseball cap, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
