Transit detectives are looking for the gross subway creep who sexually abused a pair of women at stations in Washington Heights and the Bronx in recent weeks.

Police released on Nov. 25 images of the perverted perpetrator behind the two incidents, the most recent of which occurred on Nov. 12 at the West 181st Street station on the A line in Washington Heights. 

At about 10:27 a.m. that morning, police said, the suspect approached a 45-year-old woman as she refilled her MetroCard at a vending machine. According to police, the creep exposed his genitals and began rubbing them against the victim’s back. 

Moments later, authorities said, the pervert fled the station in an unknown direction.

Weeks earlier, law enforcement sources said, the same creep groped a 59-year-old woman on the stairwell of the East Bedford Park Boulevard/Grand Concourse station on the B/D lines in the Bronx.

At about 8:22 p.m. on Oct. 26, police sources said, the suspect approached the victim as she walked up the stairs and pressed his head against her buttocks. Seconds later, he fled the scene.

Neither victim was physically injured as a result of the attacks, cops said.

Police described the subway creep as a man with a dark complexion and a black Afro, believed to be 25 to 30 years of age. He was last seen wearing a blue denim jacket, a black shirt with a hooded sweatshirt, light-colored pants and black sneakers.

Anyone with information regarding the pervert’s whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org, or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
