Police are looking for a man they said harassed a 15-year-old girl riding the R train last week.

The victim told investigators she was riding northbound near 4th Avenue and 36th Street last Wednesday when a man boarded the train, sat next to her and started rubbing her thigh and lower back.

When the girl left the train at DeKalb Avenue, the man followed her and continued to touch her. Eventually, she lost sight of him.
