Cops are on the lookout for a man who they say groped a woman on the subway last Tuesday morning, according to a report.

The victim, a 26-year-old woman, told police she was on a Coney Island-bound Q train at 8:15 am on July 21 when the alleged attacker got on at the DeKalb Avenue stop Downtown, sat down next to her, and began rubbing her thigh and crotch over her clothes, police said.

The woman managed to get away from the alleged scumbag and take a photo of him, cops said.

Her unhappy snap shows a guy with black hair, wearing sunglasses, a blue and white striped V-neck T-shirt, tan shorts, and carrying a black Adidas sports bag, according to a report.
