Man accused of groping twins on subway five years apart

NEW YORK — Police are looking for a man wanted in connection with several gropings on the subway, including a set of twins.

One of his victims took a photo of the suspect while on the No. 1 train. Sources tell PIX11 that the same man groped twin sisters years apart.

The first incident happened on Sept. 9 around 6:45 p.m. at the 42nd Street subway station. The suspect sat next to an 18-year-old woman and allegedly rubbed the inside of her thigh.

The same man struck again around 5:40 p.m. on Sept. 19 at the 66 Street subway station. This time, he sat next to a 24-year-old woman and allegedly rubbed the outside of her thigh.

Police say the incident involving the 18-year-old was connected to a 13-year-old girl who claims the same man touched her sometime between Sept. 29, 2011, and June 30, 2012, at the 110th Street subway station.

A source says the 13-year-old is now 18 and her twin sister was groped by the same man.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
