Police are hunting for a pervert who broke into a home and molested a sleeping woman on Oct. 6.

The perp entered the victim’s home near Sixth Avenue and 40th Street through an unlocked door leading into a basement apartment at around 3:30 am, and proceeded to grope the 25-year-old woman’s gentiles, according to police.

The victim awoke as the slimeball was touching her, causing him to flee the apartment toward Fifth Avenue, cops said.

Surveillance video taken from inside a nearby bodega shows the wanted suspect wearing a hat, black tee shirt, and blue jeans.
