Crotch Graber Strikes on C/E Line

Yesterday I was at the 23rd Street station for the C/E train, and was at the machine buying a Metrocard. All of a sudden I heard someone run up behind me. Before I could react, I felt a hand reach up my dress and grab my crotch extremely hard. I froze for a second from the shock of it, but turned in time to see the creep run as fast as he could up the stairs and onto the street. I didn't report it since no one saw it happen and I didn't get a good look at the guy. Also, I have the sad feeling that neither the MTA nor the NYPD would do much about it.
