RIDGEWOOD, QUEENS (WPIX)—Just as it would seem Queens got a little safer from sex attacks, now a new groper is on the loose.
Cops say a man approached a woman in her 20s around 8 a.m. last Thursday, grabbing her, groping her breast and running off. This all happened inside the Seneca Avenue Subway station on the M line in Queens.
Police describe the suspect as a 5'5" Hispanic man, last seen wearing a hoodie with the Ecko logo on the front, and a pair of jeans.
This comes a day after cops arrested a teen for two violent attempted rapes in the borough.
They charged the 15-year-old boy with two of five sex attacks in a string throughout southeastern Queens, but say he could ultimately be charged with more.
These were violent attempted rapes, punching one victim in the face repeatedly and attacking another from behind.
Cops say they were led to the teen by a tip. Now, they're hoping another tip will help them catch the latest groper.
