Cops are on the hunt for a man that pleasured himself on a subway train and then lit a congratulatory cigarette.
The man got on a Brooklyn Q train Monday around 12:30 p.m., laid across a bench, and began masturbating, cops said. When he finished, he stood up, wiped his hand on a nearby train pole and lit a cigarette. Luckily for New York law enforcement, a bystander was able to snap a photo of the creep as he smoked. According to cops, the man then got off the train at the Church St. station and disappeared.
Police described him as a black male, between the ages of 50 and 60 years old, and standing 5-foot-8. During the disturbance, he was wearing a light-colored knit cap, a blue hooded sweater, a dark jacket, gray sweatpants, black and white sneakers, and a black backpack. Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
As shocking as this is, It’s not the first time a man was busted for masturbating on a subway. Just last June, a Bronx man was arrested on public lewdness charges for allegedly repeatedly pleasuring himself in front of women on trains. Roberto Remedios was wanted for a series of masturbation incidents aboard trains. Over the course of two months, the man was accused of sitting across from three different women and staring at them while he masturbated. There’s got to be something about those NYC trains!
