Victim Snaps Back At Subway Groper

By Liz Goff

A fed up female straphanger took a shot of her own at a man who grabbed her buttocks on a Manhattan-bound No.7 train.

Cops said the 27-year-old woman was riding on the train heading into the 74th Street/Broadway station in Jackson Heights at about 3:30 p.m. on April 25, when the pervert suddenly grabbed her buttocks.

The enraged woman wheeled around and snapped a clear photo of the suspect (see photo) on her iPhone as he ran from the train, police said.

Police last week released the photo of the suspect, described as a 25-year-old male Hispanic, who was wearing a blue striped hoodie and blue and orange Mets cap at the time of the attack.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Crime Stoppers HOTLINE at 1-800-577-TIPS or click on www.nypdcrimestopers,com.

The HOTLINE is offering a $2,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
