Police from the 110th Precinct and 20th Transit District are searching for the creep who groped an MTA worker inside of the Roosevelt Avenue/74th Street subway station earlier this month.
Police say the 36-year-old female MTA worker was on duty and working on the northbound E/F train line inside of the Jackson Heights–Roosevelt Avenue/74th Street subway station at approximately 10:15 p.m. on April 16 when she was approached by an unknown man.
