Police are searching for a man they say groped a 25-year-old woman inside a Bronx subway station last month.

They both boarded a train, and the victim took a photo of the suspect with her cellphone, police said. The man then fled the train.

Police say the suspect is described as being in his 30s, about 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a green hoodie and light blue jeans.
