HELL’S KITCHEN — A bicyclist groped a tourist from California as she walked in Hell’s Kitchen, police said.

The 29-year-old victim was walking near the corner of West 46th Street and 10th Avenue around 2:25 a.m. on March 23 when a man she didn’t know started following her down the street, police said.

As she walked, the man lifted her jacket from behind and reached his hand down the back of her pants, she told police.

The woman screamed, and the man fled northbound on 10th Avenue on his bike, the NYPD said.

Police conducted a canvas of the area, but didn’t find the groper, they said.
