Police are looking for a man accused of groping a woman after apparently falling onto her on a lower Manhattan subway.
The incident occurred on a southbound 4 train on Wednesday, February 8th, at 9 a.m. Investigators say the suspect "lost his balance, fell onto the 46 year-old female victim and grabbed her breasts. He apologized and sat down."
