The man was caught on camera as he grabbed the woman from behind before sexually assaulting her on February 15, according to reports.
The man allegedly escaped after the attack by jumping over a ticket barrier.
At the time, the sanitation worker, said to be in her 50s, was working at the Lumu station on Suzhou's Metro Line 2, reported Huanqui.com, an affiliation to People's Daily Online.
The incident occurred on the morning of February 15 as she was taking an escalator.
As they were about to reach the end of the escalator, the man held the woman and forcibly kissed on her lips.
The awestruck woman didn't react until the man attempted to grab her again. She resisted and struggled to push him away.
