Police from the 105th Precinct in Queens Village are looking for a creep who sexually assaulted a 19-year-old woman on board a Q14 MTA bus on Sunday morning.

The victim was inside the bus as it approached the intersection of Rockaway Turnpike and Brookville Boulevard near the Five Towns Shopping Center in Rosedale at 7 a.m. on July 23.

An unidentified man came up behind her and grabbed her rear end and slid his hands down her thigh, police said. The suspect then exited the bus and fled in an unknown direction. The victim was not harmed during the “forcible touching” incident.

The NYPD released surveillance video of the suspect on Thursday and described him as having a mild complexion, medium build, approximately 30 to 35 years of age, 5’10” tall, around 180 lbs. With short black hair. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, red hooded sweatshirt, and a gray floppy hat.

A reward of up to $3,500 is being offered for information that leads to his arrest. Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
