NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — Police are searching for a man who groped a 19-year-old woman on a Bronx train Wednesday and followed her home.

The woman was riding a northbound 6 train approaching the 138th Street station in Mott Haven around 5:45 p.m. when the man grabbed her breast.

When she left the train and boarded a southbound 6 train at the Hunts Point Avenue station in an attempt to get away from the man, he followed her.

The man continued to follow her when she got off at the Cypress Avenue stop. He followed her all the way home and even entered the elevator with her while attempting to talk to her.

After she successfully got into her apartment without getting hurt, the attacker fled on foot.

Police are asking anyone with information on the attack to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Anonymous tips can also be submitted on the Crime Stoppers website or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
