NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Police are searching for a man they say groped an 11-year-old girl at a Bronx subway station this month.

The man followed the girl up a stairwell leading to the St. Lawrence Avenue station in the Soundview section on the morning of Nov. 6, police said.

As the girl was walking up the stairs from the street, the man touched her buttocks, according to police.

The frightened girl ran up to the station and the man fled the scene, police said.

The NYPD released surveillance video of the suspect on Friday.

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