Cops are looking for a creep who groped a woman on a Morningside Heights-bound train over the weekend.
According to police, at 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 9 a 21-year-old woman was on a northbound 1 train headed toward the 116th Street–Columbia University station when an unknown man, who was standing next to her, began to touch her without her consent.
