Detectives in Brooklyn are looking for the pervert who sexually abused a woman while on the job at a grocery store last month.

The NYPD released on April 5 video footage of the perpetrator sought for the sick incident, which occurred at 8:33 a.m. on the morning of March 13 inside a building near the corner of Myrtle and Nostrand Avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

According to law enforcement sources, the suspect approached the victim, a 28-year-old woman, as she worked inside the shop’s basement. 

Police said the perpetrator grabbed her breast, then pushed her down and attempted to remove her pants. Sources familiar with the case said it is not known whether she previously knew her attacker.

The victim then screamed, law enforcement sources said — prompting the creep to flee the location, and was last seen walking along Nostrand Avenue.

The incident was reported to the 79th Precinct. There were no reported injuries.

NYPD sources described the suspect as a man with a medium build and a red beard who wore a black hat, a black coat, a white shirt, black pants and black shoes. He’s shown making a transaction at a checkout line.

Anyone with information regarding his 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.
