Police need your help in finding a man who decided to pleasure himself in front of a woman on board a train in Long Island City earlier this week.

Law enforcement sources said a 22-year-old woman was riding a Manhattan-bound 7 train approaching the Court Square station at 2 p.m. on May 3 when she noticed the creepy suspect sitting in the car and masturbating.

The rider took a picture of the perpetrator before he exited from the train at the Fifth Avenue/Bryant Park stop and forwarded the image to police.

Authorities describe the suspect as a black male in his mid 20s standing 5 foot 7 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds who was last observed wearing black clothing and patent leather shoes.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
