The police are asking for the public’s help finding a man who allegedly touched a woman inappropriately on a bus in Sunset Park heading towards Bay Ridge on May 17.

The man allegedly sat down next to the woman on the B63 bus at 50th Street and Fifth Avenue around 11:20 am and put his hand on her leg. The woman moved the man’s hand, but a little while later the man allegedly put his hand on her leg again.
