Police are looking for a man they say fondled a woman while she was asleep on the subway.

Cops say that on Monday, August 10 at about 5:30pm, the 25-year-old victim was asleep on a southbound N train, near the Atlantic Avenue stop, when the suspect touched her buttocks. A witness reportedly woke the victim up and told her what had happened, and the suspect hightailed it off the train into the Atlantic Ave station.

This is the second groping incident reported at the Atlantic Ave hub in the past week.

Anyone with information in regards to either of these incidents is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS. You can also submit tips online or via text to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
