A man has been grabbing women in Manhattan, and police described him as a “well-dressed” criminal.

The crimes began Feb. 25, according to cops, when the man approached a 33-year-old woman from behind at 62nd Street and Park Avenue just after noon, grabbing her inner thigh and then fleeing.

The next day, around 11:15 a.m., the man grabbed a 31-year-old woman at Varick Street and King Street, touching her buttocks and private area, according to cops.

On Feb. 27, the third day in a row cops suspect this man of a groping crime, he approached a 19-year-old at 2nd Avenue and East 67th Street around 2 p.m.  grabbing her buttocks and running away.

A month passed, and then, March 30, cops say the dapper pervert grabbed a 22-year-old woman, putting his hand in between her legs, at the corner of Centre Street and Chambers Street just before 8 p.m.

Each time, he ran away, cops said. Police described the suspect, shown in a video, is described as male, 30s, 5’11″, about 180 pounds, and “well dressed.”

In a separate string of crimes, police are also looking for a Queens groper, who they say groped four women during the past month and a half.

Another crime occurred Sunday, when a Sunnyside woman was sexually attacked by a Hispanic male in his late 20s. A resident chased the attacker away, and spoke out against the violence this morning in Queens with several Council members, including Speaker Christine Quinn.

Public Advocate Bill de Blasio will hit the streets today to distribute a bilingual guide today about preventing sexual assault.

His office also offered free services to escort people home from the subway, according to de Blasio’s office.

“These incidents spread fear across entire neighborhoods,” de Blasio said in a statement. “We’re trying to fight that fear with information.”
