Police are looking for a man who groped a 14-year-old girl inside the Woodhaven Boulevard station in Elmhurst Sunday.

The young teen was entering the turnstile for the southbound R line at 5:15 p.m. when the stranger grabbed her buttocks, police said. The station is located by the Queens Center Mall on Queens Boulevard.

The girl was not injured and the man fled towards the platform.

Police describe the suspect as being approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighing about140 pounds — with a medium build, light complexion and black hair. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat, a light-colored face mask, a blue and white hooded sweatshirt and a black shirt.

Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this individual is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
