The NYPD is looking for a man who police say groped a teenager on the platform at the 96th street station last month. The woman took a picture of him before he got on the train, according to NBC.
“The woman was standing on the No. 1 train platform on West 96th Street on the Upper West Side when the suspect approached from behind and grabbed her buttocks on July 25, the NYPD says.”

Very ugly. And that’s my station. I’ll keep a look out for this creep.
I guess I’m gonna’ call off my search. The 3 Comments garnered by this Post indicates a lack of interest. I’m instead gonna’ keep my eyes out for the Lowes opening. That got 75 Comments. Must be important.
I don’t know what you mean by “call off my search”, Dannyboy. When a picture of a culprit is shown, I take a serious look at the face and keep it in mind. I would not know how to begin to conduct a search.
Also, I don’t know that there is much new for commenters to add. The many crime stories here spawn the same reaction: controversy on crime statistics, criticism of the mayor and the police, fiery remarks on race and, most times, personal attacks.
About the 75 comments, Dannyboy. First, at the moment, WSR has three *other* crime-related stories (plus a link to a fresh one in Comment 2 below), so maybe there’s fatigue. Second, the ratio of WSR crime stories to those appearing on a somewhat *major* store opening is, I would guess, at least 10-1. Third, if you look at the Lowe’s story, you will find that it includes comments related to other topics (e.g., real estate, politics, and demographics). Fourth, the news on Lowe’s is three days older than the groping story.
But, all that said, I don’t think that the groping story will garner as many comments, because, at this moment, it competes with one on a rape in CP, a shooting at Douglass Housing (generating comments not only in the “Morning Bulletin” but also under a separate story) and an update on the family of the late and beloved Muhammad Camera.

I thought we’d discuss what we could do to remedy this and prevent future events, not your Comment’s unrelated list.
Locating the perp is the remedy. Then it’s in the hands of Justice system.
You said that you would call off your search.
You did not talk about remedying anything. We’d probably all welcome your suggestions on remedies.
Also, it was Bubacarr — not Mohammed — who was murdered.
Sorry, it should have read “robbery” (not “rape”) in CP. A rape just occurred there, but it was on the East Side (Boathouse).
how about this!? https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/man-26-clings-life-beaten-group-uws-article-1.2319679
Wow, the 2 “Related Stories” in the Daily News are also UWS violence!
I’ve been telling people about how I stay away from newspapers and tv news, sticking to the ‘lighter side’ in the WSR. I guess I am finding that ‘heavy news’ is everywhere now.
Yea, I was right about The News. Forgetaboutit!
Here’s the latest: “Lowe’s on 68th and Broadway now says it’s opening the week of August 17, instead of today. “We hit an unexpected delay,” a spokesperson tells us.”
Dannyboy, it was very responsible of WSR to point that out, since their earlier story had stated that the store would open on the 10th. It probably saved some readers a futile trip.
Talking to yourself?
This is a one Mark website, you are an imposter
I’m the smart one.
If by intelligent you mean delusional
He looks like he was here for Mens Fashion Week.
This confirms that we are not going to discuss what we could do to remedy this crime and prevent future events.
Stay out of the subways. Just use UBER. That’s what you do.
Less than an hour *after* you wrote this message, as part of a reply to Comment 1 above, you made a U-turn, I think, by positing your “remedy” as “locating the perp” and bringing him to justice. Obviously, then, you’re right when you confirm that we are “not going to discuss what we could do to remedy this crime and prevent future events”, since you produced the answer above.
You replied in that above Comment 1 (5:26pm), that I provided an “unrelated list”. It is not “unrelated” to mention all the WSR crime stories and the glut of comments which they generate, and then compare them with the rare and peaceable ones on the opening of a large store, where there are no flames and no calling of names.
I hope, though, that you will not lose your resolve in trying to find this groper just because there are 75 comments about Lowe’s — especially since most of the rest of us are tied to a situation where we have to rely on the police to do that kind of work.
The police release perp photos and relay that “Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit tips anonymously by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at http://WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or texting 274637(CRIMES), then entering TIP577.” seeking our help. They do not do crime prevention in a vacuum. We are a community.
Here’s something to please Comment Counters who object to stores that supply us with cleaning and building products:
As of now there are 40 comments on the CP choking/robbery and 39 on Douglass Housing. This equals exactly the 79 comments on Lowe’s (which is an older story). By the end of the day, it looks as though Lowe’s won’t even be in the running. And my total doesn’t even include the Douglass comments which are part of “Morning Bulletin”, nor the Camera follow-up story, nor the 21 comments here.
And my apologies for slighting the donut holdup, which accomplished a respectable 30.
That minor Dunkin Donut razor blade holdup doesn’t deserve to be slighted because Joe (with, perhaps, what some would consider lack of proper gravity) submitted to it one of the two wittiest comments that I’ve read in at least a month:
“Hope no one working there was hurt.”
“Also hope the lowlife didn’t grab a donut on the way out; eating one of those would be worse punishment than any jail time!”
now you got your priorities!
