Police are looking for an alleged creep who groped a woman’s genitals inside an Astoria subway station last week.

The suspect, according to police, sexually assaulted a 22-year-old woman inside the 46th Street-Broadway subway station on Sept. 4 at around 2:25 p.m. as she walked down a flight of stairs.

The man approached the woman and then placed his hands underneath her skirt – before grabbing her vagina and buttocks, according to police.

He then fled the station on foot towards 46th Street, police said.

The suspect is described by police as Hispanic and was last seen wearing a blue-colored polo shirt, blue jeans, black boots, and a blue knapsack.

Police released an image of the man wanted for questioning.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this individual is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
