NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – The NYPD is searching for four creeps who they say groped women in the subway or on the streets in separate incidents in recent weeks.

Police released surveillance images of all four suspects Sunday and are asking for the public’s help in tracking them down.

Two of the women were groped on the 7 line in Queens; a third was groped on the 4 line in Harlem; and a fourth was grabbed on a Williamsburg street.

In the first case, a 15-year-old girl was near the 61st Street-Woodside 7 line station in Queens Wednesday morning when she was approached by a man, police say.

The man allegedly touched the girl’s privates over her clothing as she was aboard a 7 train.

The suspect, described as a man in his 30s, got off the train at Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, police say.

In the second case, a 28-year-old woman was getting off a 4 line train in Harlem earlier this month when she had her rear end grabbed by a man at the 125th Street station, according to police.

Cops are searching for a 20-something-year-old suspect in that case.

In the third case, also on the 7 line, a 20-year-old woman had her rear end grabbed as she was exiting a train at the Roosevelt Avenue station in Jackson Heights earlier this month.

Police say the suspect in that case is a man in his late 20s or early 30s.

The fourth case happened late last month in Williamsburg.

Police say a 22-year-old woman was on Lee Avenue when a 25-year-old man reached under her skirt and underwear and touched her rear end and private parts.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
