BROOKLYN -

Police have released video of a man wanted for groping a woman earlier this month in Brownsville.

It happened on a busy street corner at Livonia and Rockaway avenues. The spot is surrounded by businesses, a NYCHA development and a subway line.

It happened on March 10 around 8 a.m. The video shows the man touching the 30-year-old woman on her breast and buttocks.

The woman wasn't injured, but police say the man managed to get away.

News 12 showed the video to people in the area, and some said they recognized the man. They say he's often seen outside of a nearby liquor store, but say that he hasn't been seen since the video's release.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
