Police are searching for a man who allegedly groped two women in separate incidents just after midnight on Thursday morning.

The suspect, described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 4 inches tall, slim and in his 20s, pushed the first victim, a 25 year old woman, up against a car and groped her genitals over her clothing in front of 30-61 46th Street. He fled when she began to yell.

Minutes later, he wrapped his arms around a 26-year-old woman from behind near 45th Street and Newton Road and attacked her in the same manner, again fleeing when she yelled for help.

The suspect was last seen wearing a light blue t-shirt, black pants, and black sneakers.

The New York City Police Department 114th Precinct has released a surveillance tape of the suspect and is asking for public help in identifying and locating him.
