BROOKLYN, — The search for a subway groper is still ongoing, a week after a 24-year-old woman was groped on a crowded train in Brooklyn then captured a photo of her attacker, NYPD said.

At around 7:40 p.m. on May 28, a woman told police she was groped while riding a southbound No. 4 train that was entering the Nevins Street station in Brooklyn. That’s when a man came up to her and rubbed her leg with his hand repeatedly, police said.

The man stayed on the train after the incident and the woman was able to capture a picture of the perp, police said.

Along with the picture, the NYPD described the man as Hispanic or Asian, about 50 years old, 5 feet tall, 130 pounds with salt and pepper short hair.
