Police have released video and photos of a man wanted for allegedly groping a woman at a Jackson Heights subway station last month.
The alleged pervert approached the 36-year-old victim inside the 82nd Street-Jackson Heights subway station while she was walking down a staircase from the southbound 7 train platform to the mezzanine at around 9:45 p.m. on May 27, according to police.
While on the staircase, the suspect allegedly grabbed the woman’s genital area and touched her leg, cops said.
