PARK SLOPE - Police are looking for a man who has been groping women in Park Slope.

Authorities say at least two women have been touched this month. Both were leaving the Prospect Avenue train station.

The suspect is described as Hispanic, about 130 pounds and between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 9 inches tall.

Police say the first victim was a 28-year-old woman who was walking on 17th Street from the train station at around 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 5. Authorities say the suspect reached under her skirt, grabbed her and ran off.

Investigators say the same scenario happened last Tuesday when the same man groped a 25-year-old woman as she walked home from the same station.

Anyone with information about the suspect is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
