MIDTOWN, Manhattan — Police are looking for a man they say touched a woman inappropriately as she entered a Midtown subway station earlier this month.

According to authorities, just after 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 7, the woman was walking down the stairs of the MTA subway station under Grand Central Terminal, near East 42nd Street.
