A woman was groped at a lower Manhattan subway station last month, and now police have released surveillance footage of the suspect, who remains at large.
The incident occurred just after 7 p.m on November 19th, at the Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall subway station on Chambers Street. According to the NYPD, "the individual followed the 25 year-old female victim onto the subway platform and grabbed her buttocks and private area from behind as she boarded the train."
The suspect fled the station and is now wanted for forcible touching. He is described as 20 to 30 years old, 5'8" to 5'10" and 140 to 160 pounds. He has a beard and was last seen wearing a black backpack, a black jacket and a white T-shirt.
