Police are searching for a good-for-nothing who they said grabbed a 16-year-old girl’s rear while aboard a D train on Nov. 6.

The teenage straphanger told cops she was riding the Manhattan-bound Orange bullet somewhere between the 36th Street and Atlantic Avenue stations when the 60-year-old suspect groped her buttocks.

The victim managed to snap a photo of the alleged creep before he exited the subway at Atlantic Avenue station and fled, according to a report.

Authorities described the suspect as approximately 5-foot-7 and 230 pounds, with salt-and-pepper hair and a tattoo of three tear drops below his left eye.

Reach Deputy Editor Anthony Rotunno at or by calling (718) 260–8303.

Reasonable discourse

Jennifer from Brooklyn says:
I'm also a 16 year old girl, and if I had a penny for everytime someone grabbed my plumptuous bottom on the train, I'd have 59 cents! Why is it that old latino men see a pert and flabby cushion in the trunk as an invitation to poke, punch and jiggle our buttocks?!?! No way José!!!
This juicy badonkadunk is for young men only! And never on a train, only in the privacy of my own bedroom! Don't put your filthy working man's fingers on my pure, fat b-hole! No no no!!
