The NYPD says the incident happened during the morning rush hour, at 8:49 a.m. on Monday, November 9th. A 28-year-old woman was boarding a northbound Q train at the Gravesend Neck Road and East 16 Street station when "a male suspect approached [her]...and grabbed her buttocks. The victim then took a picture with her cellphone while the suspect was on the train."
