NEW YORK (PIX11) – A sleeping straphanger awoke to find a man kissing and fondling her on a D train late last month, police said.

The 20-year-old woman had fallen asleep in the Brooklyn-bound car when she woke up around 55th Street to find a man leaning over her.  Police say he was kissing her and grabbing her breasts when she opened her eyes.

She managed to push him off and the man, described as a Hispanic male in his forties, ran off the train and fled the station.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the anonymous tip line Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
