NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police have released images of a man they want to talk to in connection with the groping a young girl on the Lower East Side.

The pictures were taken moments before a 9-year-old girl was groped near 10th Street and Avenue D around 4:45 p.m. on April 14.

The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, about 5-foot-9 and weighing approximately 240 pounds, with black hair mixed with gray. He was last seen wearing a blue long-sleeve shirt, dark jeans and white metal wired glasses.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
