Corey Walcott, 43, is charged with forcible touching and sexual abuse, police said on Saturday.
Walcott is accused of placing his hand on the crotch of a 61-year-old woman at around 9 p.m. on Oct. 3, cops said.
The incident took place near Sixth Avenue and West 4th Street on a staircase along an “A/D” train line, authorities said.
The suspect ran off after making the pervy play, police said.
The NYPD circulated a photo of the suspect.
The NYPD did not immediately disclose how or where they caught Walcott.
