Groping Victim Speaks To PIX11 About Attack
The NYPD has released a picture of the man who groped a young Bronx woman in December at the Kingsbridge Road subway station.

"I swiped my card and nobody was around. I was going up the stairs and out of nowhere, someone lifted my dress and touched me," said Ellen, the victim who spoke exclusively to PIX11 News. Ellen, who did not want us to use her last name, said she was on her way to a show in Manhattan back on December 14th. It was around 7:30 at night and there were few people in the B and D train subway station.

"I felt a little dirty," said the 25 year old. "Because I felt, why me?"

The Kingsbridge resident ran up the stairs and to the subway platform. Ellen hoped on the first train that arrived. But the pervert taunted her from across the platform. "He was smiling, waving. It almost felt like he knew who I was," she said.

The NYPD describes the man as Hispanic between 25 and 30 years old and about 6-feet tall. He was wearing an oversized, navy-blue bubble coat, faded blue jeans, and a dark colored do-rag beneath a Russian style fur hat with brown fur trim.

As PIX11 News handed out flyers with the suspect's picture in the subway station, we met Lisa. She had a similar horrible experience two months ago in the Kingsbridge Road subway station. A man exposed himself, masturbated and tried to attack her. "I come home at night and there are always sexual predators at this station."

While there are surveillance cameras, there is no subway booth attendant in the station to ward off potential attackers. If you know who the man is that attacked Ellen, police want your help. You can contact the NYPD's Crimestoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS. All calls are confidential.
