Days after Manhattan prosecutors dropped charges against a Brooklyn man police are releasing new photos of the so-called "well-dressed groper".

Investigators say this man is suspected of groping women on February 25 and 27 on the Upper East Side, February 26 in SoHo and on March 30 inside the Chambers Street subway station.

Police say the man approaches the women from behind, grabs them and runs away.

The new photos bear little resemblance to the man originally arrested in the case.

Charges against Karl Vanderwoude, 26, were dropped this week after he produced evidence showing he was nowhere near the scenes of the crimes.

The suspect is believed to be around 30 years old and approximately 5'11" tall, with brown hair.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
