Police are looking for the slimy creep who sexually assaulted a 23-year-old woman last week.
According to the NYPD, the encounter began when the assailant approached the victim from behind as she was walking up the steps of the Flushing Avenue subway station on April 17 at around 9 p.m.
The deviant then slapped the victim’s buttocks without warning, startling the victim.
Before police could arrive on the scene, the assaulter ran off on foot along Flushing Avenue, located at the border of Williamsburg and Bedford-Stuyvesant.
The victim was physically unharmed, and did not require medical attention as a result of the attack.
Police described the suspect as approximately 5’9” in height, and an estimated 190 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark colored hooded jacket.
Citywide, the NYPD has recorded 2,109 sexually-based offenses between New Year’s Day and April 16.
