Police in New York City are appealing to the public for help in identifying a man who was caught on surveillance video groping a woman on a Bronx street in broad daylight.

The incident happened back on August 27, but NYPD Crime Stoppers on Thursday released footage showing the perpetrator in action.

In the video, which was recorded at 4.20pm, the victim, described as a 40-year-old woman, is seen walking along Valentin Avenue near East 180th Street in West Bronx.

A man dressed in dark-colored pants and a white tank top follows the woman, then breaks into a light jog to catch up to her.

Seconds later, he reaches the unsuspecting pedestrian, wraps his arms from behind around her upper torso and fondles her breasts.

The woman pushes the pervert away, prompting him to flee on foot toward East 180th Street.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the perpetrator’s arrest.

Anyone with information on the man’s identity or his whereabouts is being asked to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
