Police are looking for a man they say groped a woman as she left the DeKalb Avenue subway station on Dec. 16.

The victim told cops she was leaving the station at 2:55 pm, and as she was going through the full-length turnstile a man came up and squeezed in behind her then grabbed her buttocks. The suspect fled afterwards, cops said.

He is thought to be between 30- and 40-years-old, 6 feet tall, and 250 pounds, police said.

Law enforcement officials ask people with information about the crime or suspect to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at, or text-message them to 274637, then enter “TIP577”.
