Alleged Subway Groper Followed Girl off Train as He Rubbed Her Back: NYPD

Police are searching for a man accused of groping a teenage girl on the subway in Brooklyn last week. 

Police said the 15-year-old girl was sitting on a northbound R train just before 8 a.m. on April 6 when a man boarded at 4th Avenue and 36th Street in Greenwood, sat next to her and began to rub her thigh and lower back.

The girl got off the train at DeKalb Avenue, and the man followed her, still rubbing her back, until she walked out of the station and lost sight of him, police said.

The suspect is believed to be in his 20s. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
