Lower Manhattan groper caught on surveillance video

Police are hoping this video will lead to the arrest of a man wanted in a pair of gropings in Lower Manhattan
Police are looking for a man accused of inappropriately touching two women in Lower Manhattan, and they're hoping surveillance video will lead to an arrest.

Authorities say that just before 3 a.m. On May 18, the suspect grabbed the buttocks of a 24-year-old woman inside the hallway of her apartment building on East 14th Street before fleeing the scene.

About a month later, at 2 a.m. on June 15, they say the same man touched a 22-year-old woman in her apartment building at Stuyvesant Oval.

The suspect is described as being 25 to 35 years old, about 5-foot-10 and 175 to 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black sports jacket, black dress pants, a light-colored dress shirt and black dress shoes.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
