A better look at alleged W. Houston St. subway groper

Police recently released more images and footage of a subway sicko who they say groped a woman at the W. Houston St. I.R.T. station, then threatened to stab her when she tried to film him.

According to cops, on Sun., June 21, around 11 p.m., a 48-year-old woman was exiting up the stairs from the No. 1 train at the Soho/Hudson Square-area subway station when a stranger grabbed her buttocks.

The victim tried to record the male outside the station but the man tried to knock the camera out of her hand. The groper then brandished a weapon and threatened to stab her before fleeing down the stairs toward the northbound 1 train.

The victim was not injured.

Police provided surveillance video of the alleged suspect. At the time of the incident, he sported dreadlocks.

Anyone with information should call the New York Police Department’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Tips can also be submitted on the Crime Stoppers Web site at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or on Twitter at @NYPDTips.
