ELMHURST — Police are looking for a man who allegedly groped two women and a teenage girl on three occasions last month.

In each broad daylight attack, the suspect grabbed the victim's breasts and fled, according to the NYPD.

The suspect groped the first victim, a 21-year-old woman, at 7:30 a.m. on Aug. 11 on Haspel Street and 55th Avenue, police said.

He then groped a 28-year-old woman two days later in front of 44-20 Ketcham St. at 8:30 a.m., police said.

His third victim, a 17-year-old girl, was grabbed in front of 52-12 Van Horn St. at 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 26.

Police described the suspect as 5-foot-10 and about 170 pounds.

In surveillance video from the third incident, he's seen creeping up on the victim before grabbing her, police said.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
