The police are hoping the public can help them find a man accused of forcible touching at a Queens subway station.
According to the NYPD, the incident occurred last Friday, May 6th, at 6:30 p.m.: "A 23-year-old female victim was walking up the 'J' line escalator inside the Jamaica Center subway station when an unknown male approached her from behind and slapped her buttocks. The victim took a cell phone photo of the male after the incident occurred and exited to the street area."
The suspect, who remained in the station, is described as being in his mid-30s and about 5'9" with brown hair and a goatee. He was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and tan pants.
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).
