    Police have arrested a man in connection with the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl at a Brooklyn  subway station last month.

    Mario Escudero-Flores, 29, of Brooklyn,  was arrested Thursday and charged with sexual misconduct, forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child, police said. Police allege that Flores approached a young girl from behind at the Fort Hamilton N-train subway stop in Sunset Park on May 31 and assaulted her, then fled.

    No further details were immediately available.  A spokesman for the Brooklyn District Attorney said the case was not yet in a system and it was not known if Flores had an attorney or would appear before a judge today.
