If You Show Your Jimmy to Random Women on the Train, You're Probably Going to Get Caught
Police are looking for a middle-aged man who on Wednesday became the latest in a revolving door of public transportation perverts who's wanted for public lewdness after flashing and touching his penis on the 2-Train in Brooklyn.
Ostensibly, he could've been touching and showing his jimmy all morning, or all week, even, but the suspect was first noticed around 1:45 p.m. at the Atlantic Avenue Station. A 28-year-old woman was in his car and looked over at him. That's when he pulled out his peter in plain sight, and started touching said peter.
Many men and women would've looked or even walked away, but our nameless heroine whipped out her cell phone and captured the whole ordeal on video before getting off at the next stop.
Police say if you know who the man in the photo is, or better yet, if it is you, to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. And for the seemingly endless stream of men lining up to grope themselves or others on the subway: stop.
