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.

The man proceeded to grab the woman’s rear end and then fled the station on a northbound train, police said.

No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

Police released a surveillance image of the suspect on April 20. He has a medium complexion and was wearing tan pants and a white shirt.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
