Police are looking for a senior who got handsy with a stranger onboard a subway train in Long Island City Tuesday.
The suspect, believed to be in his 70s, allegedly grabbed the butt of a 49-year-old man on board a northbound E train near the Court Square-23rd Station at around 4:45 p.m..
The septuagenarian allegedly grabbed the victim’s butt while walking past him on the train.
The senior then stayed on the train before exiting at the Roosevelt Avenue – Jackson Height station. The victim snapped a photo of the alleged creep with his phone.
Police described the suspect as a partially bald man in his 70s with a light complexion, weighing 200 pounds and standing about 5 feet tall.
He was last seen wearing a black Fila polo shirt, black slacks, black dress shoes, black-framed eyeglasses, a black surgical mask and carrying a black jacket.
Anyone with information in regard 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). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
Uhhh…it is not exactly uncommon for 70-year olds to grab stuff to stabilize themselves as they walk. Did the “victim” confront the guy? I doubt he would have put up a fight. Maybe it is time for the “victim” to adult up and stop acting like a snowflake.
