Man Laughs as He Gropes Woman for Second Time on 7 Train, Police Say

(DNAINFO)  Noah Horowitz | November 14, 2016 — A woman confronted a man for groping her but he just laughed and assaulted her again, police said.

A man laughed in a woman’s face after groping her once on the subway platform at Grand Central station and then again a short time later on the 7 train, according to a police report.

The 24-year-old victim was waiting for a 7 train on the platform at Grand Central Terminal just before 1 p.m. on Oct. 20, when the suspect came up from behind and grabbed her butt, according to police.

A short time later, as the woman boarded a Queens-bound 7 train, she noticed her attacker on the train and confronted him, but the suspect simply laughed at her and groped her again, police said.

The victim managed to snap a photo of the man, who got off the train at the 61st Street-Woodside stop in Queens, according to a police report.

Police described the suspect as a man in his thirties, standing about 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighing about 145 pounds, with a birthmark on his left arm. He was seen wearing a grey, short-sleeved hoodie and a silver Casio watch, according to authorities.
