Police are looking for a man they say has groped five women at subway stations in the Elmhurst section of Queens.

Officials say the man forcibly touched women on five occasions between early February and last week, four times at the Broadway and Queens Boulevard stations and once at the Elmhurst Avenue and Broadway stop.

The victims ranged in age between 19 and 43, police say.

The suspect approached the women from behind in four of the gropings and grabbed or touched the women's private areas. He forced his hand under two of the women's pants and lifted the skirts of two victims.
