Police are searching for a man who molested a man on an A train last month while also allegedly telling him, "Give my regards to the NYPD, they know me well."

According to the NYPD, the incident occurred at 2:40 p.m. on Sunday, August 28th. The 36-year-old man, who was traveling with his family, was on an A train when he was "approached by a male who grabbed the victim's buttocks" as the train headed from 72nd Street to Columbus Circle.

The victim also said the groper told him, "Yeah you know you like that. You know what I mean—you have a nice soft ass. You know you like that."

The victim took a photograph of his assailant before he left the train.


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).
