MANHATTAN (PIX11) — Police are looking for a man who allegedly groped a woman after the New York City Marathon last year.

Cops say the 29-year-old woman was waiting for the light to change at 5th Ave. and West 37th Street after running the marathon Nov. 2, 2014 when the suspect squeezed her buttocks. When she turned around to confront him, he then squeezed her breast. While fighting off the suspect, the woman sustained a laceration to her left hand. A witness was able to capture several images of the suspect as he fled down 5th Avenue.

The suspect is described as about 5’8″, 190 pounds and was last seen wearing a blue winter bubble jacket with brown patches on the elbows, white shirt underneath and blue jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
