Police believe the same person violently groped women in two different incidents in Queens last week.

The first incident occurred just after midnight on July 21st, in front of 30-61 46 Street: The NYPD says the male "suspect approached the 25 year-old female from behind, pushed her up against a car and touched her genitals over her clothing. When the victim yelled out for help the suspect fled the location."

Then, a few minutes later, just a couple blocks away, near 45 Street and Newton Road, police say that "the suspect approached the 26 year-old female from behind, wrapped his arms around her and touched her genitals over her clothing. The suspect fled southbound on 45 Street when the victim yelled out for help."

Investigators released surveillance footage of the suspect, who is described as being in his 20s and 5'4" to 5'5" with a slim build and last seen wearing a light blue t-shirt, black pants and black sneakers.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
