    Suspect in Union Square subway sex abuse last Sunday, Oct. 23

    A quick-thinking woman was able to take a picture of the man who groped her on a subway platform in Union Square last week, giving police a clear shot of their suspect.

    The incident happened last Sunday, Oct. 23, at about 9:30 a.m. on the southbound platform of the 6 train at Union Square.

    According to police, the suspect grabbed the 19-year-old victim by the shoulder, lifted up her dress and grabbed the victim's buttocks and private area.

    They both boarded the next train, and that's when the victim took a picture of the suspect, police said.

    Anyone with information on the incident or the suspect is asked to contact NYPD Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at nypdcrimestoppers.com.
