QUEENS — A shirtless suspect groped a woman before punching her in the face at a Corona subway station, police said Friday.

The 45-year-old victim had just hopped off a 7 train at the 103rd Street and Roosevelt Avenue stop when the man came up from behind and touched her buttocks Sept. 16 around 10 p.m., according to police.

She then hit him in the chest before he punched her in the face and fled, the NYPD said.

She refused medical attention at the scene, according to police.

The attacker is about 30, 5-foot-6 and about 140 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS
