A man accused of forcibly touching a woman on a Brooklyn street was filmed on the victim's own camera after the incident.

Police say the 33-year-old victim was in the area of 8th Avenue and 49th Street in Sunset Park at about 1:15 a.m. Sept. 8 when a man approached her from behind and touched her inappropriately.

He fled on foot, but not before the victim was able to get pictures and video of her assailant.

Earlier this week, police arrested a man accused of groping a woman on a subway platform last month. The victim in the case was also able to get a close-up photo of the suspect.

Anyone who recognizes the man in the pictures is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at nypdcrimestoppers.com.
