The 29-year-old man was riding in the N train as it approached the Broadway-31st Street Station at around 3:30 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 11, when the suspect approached him and began touching his genital area over his clothing “inappropriately,” police said.
To make matters worse, the pervert exposed his genitals to the victim before getting off at the Broadway Station and fleeing in an unknown direction, police said, adding that there were no injuries during the “public lewdness” incident.
The NYPD released a surveillance photo of the suspect Tuesday and he is described as having a medium complexion and a slight goatee. He was wearing a beige baseball cap with NY on the front, a light-colored polo shirt, dark cargo pants and dark boots. He had a black backpack over one shoulder.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
