Cops are after a man they say sexually assaulted a female passenger on the 4 train earlier this month.
The victim, a 22-year-old woman, told investigators that the suspect rubbed his crotch against her as the East New York–bound train was pulling out of the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station at 6:30 pm on Aug. 5.
The suspect ran off the train when it pulled into the next stop at Franklin Avenue, but the quick-thinking woman managed to snap a photo before he made his escape. Police are circulating the image in hopes of identifying the man.
Authorities described the suspect as being in his 50s, standing 5-foot-10-inches tall, and weighing 250 pounds.
The mustachioed suspect was photographed wearing a white shirt.
Anyone with information regarding this sexual assault should call (800) 577-8477. All calls will be confidential.
