Have You Seen... the Latest Subway Stroker
We had a couple of guys playing with themselves on the subway this summer, and figured we'd see less of them when the weather turned cold. But it was a mild fall, and now NYPD tells us that on
November December 7* at around 3 a.m. this guy got on the Queensbound G and, seeing an 18-year-old woman who caught his fancy, "exposed his erect penis while looking at the victim and began to masturbate." He left at Woodhaven Boulevard and hopped the Brooklyn-bound train, which suggests he was more interested in the journey, so to speak, than the destination. He's described as 30-40 years old, 5'11", and was wearing a white jacket, "colorful" shirt, dark pants and a blue winter hat with white trim at the time.
If you have info, NYPD asks that you call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)., or visit WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or text to 274637 (CRIMES) and then enter TIP577.
(Update: This date is corrected by the NYPD. Looks like the phenomenon will persist into deep winter.)
