Police: Queens Suspect Forcibly Grabbed Woman's Breast In Subway Station

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- A suspect is being sought in connection with yet another sex crime in Queens.

Police said that last Thursday a suspect approached 22-year-old woman at the Seneca Avenue M Line subway station and grabbed her breast and private area.  The suspect then fled the station for the street, authorities said.

The suspect is said to be a Hispanic man, between 25-30 years old and approximately 5-foot-5.  He was last seen wearing a hooded ECKO sweatshirt and blue jeans.

This incident coincides with five unrelated crimes in Queens Village and Laurelton.  A 15-year-old was arrested and charged in two of those incidents earlier Monday.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).  The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
