A woman’s body parts were forcibly touched by a man at Woodside’s 52nd Street station, police said, in yet another similar incident along the 7 line.

The incident happened on Nov. 6 at around 6:05 p.m., when the 21-year-old victim exited a Manhattan-bound 7 train at the station and headed to the mezzanine area, police said.

At the mezzanine level, a man approached her and grabbed her buttocks, according to police. When the victim turned around to confront the man, he grabbed her and pushed her about her breasts before running from the station, police said.

The 21-year-old victim refused medical attention at the scene, according to police.

The suspect, shown in a photograph released by the NYPD, is described as Hispanic, in his 30s, of a medium complexion, and 6’0” tall with a muscular build at around 200 pounds. He has brown eyes and no hair atop his head, and was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, white sneakers, and blue jeans.

Anyone with information in regards 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 WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

At least three forcible touching incidents occurred in September along the 7 train line. On Sept. 16, a man touched a woman’s backside and punched her when she confronted him. On the 21st, a man groped a woman’s buttocks as she entered the 61st station. On the 27th, a man later revealed to be a city employee was arrested after repeatedly touching a woman’s behind aboard a 7 train near Willets Point.

Trump's America

Reprehensible. This kind of sexual assault is what we’d expect from Trump, Ailes, Roy Moore, etc, not respectable citizens.

Papers Please

Geez, what the hell does Trump or politics have to do with some sexual assualt at 52 street…i guess then we can also blame Slick Willie Clinton….go into your safe space so you dont melt, snow flake…another thing how is one a respectable citizen if one is wanted for doing this… we call them suspects…

Trump's America

Surprised you didn’t know this, but Bill Clinton hasn’t been president for 15 years. Glad I could inform you.

God, Guns and Guts

Your right…after 15 one must forget of what someone has done…. then lee and christopher should have no problem…your not a snowflake but more of a boulder flake


Please please. – we see you take your marching orders from an obese drug addicted gas bag. You have never posted an original sentence or comment. You’re a bore.


Your an idiot what the hell does Trump or any person voting for him have to do with it. You want to blame someone blame that little jerkoff Jimmy Van Bramer for allowing all the homeless to be put up a block from this subway at our tax expense. Blame Van Bramer for wasting time with his anti Trump rally’s instead of doing his damn job.


There are so many people and families that live in that area. They should all get together with elected officials and the MTA and create some type of campaign or demand more security measures on our subways and this line specifically. Every month we hear or read about an assault. Can you also imagine how many other woman in that area are not reporting assaults because they are undocumented and afraid to speak up? You can deny it all you want but Queens is full of undocumented immigrants and I am sure they need are help! Disgusting that the community is not doing more to help out. These suspects need to be prosecuted.


i agree. i wouldn’t mind paying $10-$20 a fare each way for this. oh…you thought it was gonna be free? lolz


Women have always known but men are just realizing this happens all day every day all over the world.
