Cops are looking to catch a man who decided to get a cheap thrill in front of a female passenger while riding a subway train in Ridgewood earlier this month.
According to law enforcement sources, the 39-year-old female victim boarded a Canarsie-bound L train at the Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenues station at 2 p.m. on Aug. 10 when she saw the individual sprawled across one of the train’s benches with his hands down his pants masturbating. The incident was later reported to police.
Police are now looking for the male suspect, who was described as a black male in his 50s, and was last seen wearing a black sleeveless shirt and white and gray shorts. He was also carrying with him a black bag with white dots on it.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
