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.

Queens Public Library hosts conversation with Astoria author on borough history

Borough history geeks will want to mark Tuesday, April 4, on their calendars for the Queens Public Library’s Queens Memory Project online talk with Astoria author Rebecca Bratspies. The processor at CUNY Law in Long Island City will discuss her new book, “Naming Gotham: The Villains, Rogues and Heroes Behind New York’s Place Names,” and take a deep dive into the lives of the people for whom many Queens places are named, some of which have become synonymous with congestion, recreation or culture.

“Queens is the most diverse place on the planet. That diversity is our greatest strength. Our patchwork of unique neighborhoods has welcomed successive waves of immigrants, each adding incredible foods and traditions to our vibrant civic life,” Bratspies said. “Yet it is striking how few of the names that grace Queens’ major infrastructure actually reflect that diversity. By tracing the lives of the people whose names have become New York’s urban shorthand for congestion, recreation, and infrastructure, Naming Gotham offers readers an accessible way to understand the complexity of multiracial, multicultural New York City.”
