A 16-year-old girl was groped by an alleged pervert on a subway train in Woodside last month, and police released an image Saturday of the suspect wanted for questioning.

The victim, police said, was riding on a southbound 7 train near the 52nd Street and Lincoln Avenue subway station at around 8 a.m. when the alleged creep approached her and started talking to her.

The man then allegedly grabbed the teen’s right breast, back and side without her consent, police said.

They both rode the train into Manhattan before getting off at the Times Square–42nd Street station. It is unclear if the man and the victim remained on board the same carriage during the remainder of the ride.

No injuries were reported and police did not provide any other information.

The photo shows the suspect having a light complexion with black hair. He can be seen wearing a light-colored hoodie and black pants.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/ or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.

Probably because she was afraid to be late for school or work. Or maybe because she panicked and froze, especially because she was so young. Or maybe she figured switching cars or moving away from him was enough.

Who cares — it wasn’t her fault regardless. And why are you sticking up for a child molester?

Predators like him who prey on youngsters should not only be incarcerated but should also be cut off from any government welfare programs for at least 10 years.
Yet we all know that NYC Democrat politicians and judges will continue to enable them.

Great point Mac, but boy do you change opinions on a daily basis. But if you want to keep it local, lets see… Robert Melendez, Anthony Wiener, and aid of DiBlasio’s, etc.

But thanks for trying to stray from the topic. But we all know liberals love criminals.

Great retort Mac! Once again when a liberal elitist gets called out and exposed, they resort to nonsensical insults. Stay classy Mac!
