Police are searching for a good-for-nothing who they said grabbed a 16-year-old girl’s rear while aboard a D train on Nov. 6.

The teenage straphanger told cops she was riding the Manhattan-bound Orange bullet somewhere between the 36th Street and Atlantic Avenue stations when the 60-year-old suspect groped her buttocks.

The victim managed to snap a photo of the alleged creep before he exited the subway at Atlantic Avenue station and fled, according to a report.

Authorities described the suspect as approximately 5-foot-7 and 230 pounds, with salt-and-pepper hair and a tattoo of three tear drops below his left eye.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.

Reach Deputy Editor Anthony Rotunno at arotunno@cnglocal.com or by calling (718) 260–8303.
