BROOKLYN - Police are trying to track down the man accused of forcibly touching a 13-year-old girl in Crown Heights. 

Investigators released a photo of the suspect, which was snapped by the teen victim back on June 4. 

According to authorities, the man tried to strike up a conversation with the girl on the corner of Utica Avenue and Eastern Parkway, but she refused his advances and entered a nearby store.

The man is believed to be between 25 and 30 years old, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and 160 pounds. He was wearing a blue baseball cap with the letters "KC" on it, a white T-shirt, torn jeans and white sneakers.
