MANHATTAN – Investigators have been on the hunt for a serial subway pervert for months— he’s been terrorizing women across the city, starting his disgusting sex crime spree back in February out in Queens— now he’s targeting the Upper East Side with his disgusting routine and police hope someone recognizes him before he strikes again.
In almost all cases, police say the suspect exposes and pleasures himself in front of strangers just trying to get through their commute.
In one case, at 4:00 in the afternoon of July 3rd, police say the subway sicko did just that, but instead of on a train, investigators say he did it inside an elevator at the East 63rd Street-Lexington Avenue subway station— three women were inside with the creep.
The suspect is wanted in several disturbing incidents, the latest last Friday morning inside the East 59th Street-Fifth Avenue (R) subway station where police say the suspect followed a 41-year-old woman up the stairs, grabbed her rear end, then ran away.
The suspect in this case is believed by police to be in his 30’s– standing 5’6″ tall and weighing 200 pounds— they say he has brown hair with highlights and last seen wearing a green sleeveless shirt, gray shorts and white sneakers.
If you recognize this man or have any information that could help police, please contact NYPD Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-8477.
