Police are searching for the pervert who they say targeted a woman on an Upper East Side-bound subway train, victimizing her with his depraved sexual desires during the morning rush last Friday, April 28th.
The northbound Q train had left the 57th Street subway station in Midtown around 7:50 am, on its way northbound to 63rd Street-Lexington Avenue on the Upper East Side, when police say the creep approached a 49-year-old woman in the car and rubbed his genitals against her hand, then fled the train car.
