Subway Stroker Suspect Arrested!


This afternoon, two cops assigned to Transit District 3 recognized a guy going into the subway station at 163rd Street and St. Nicholas Avenue from this now-famous photo of the “Straphanger” suspected of masturbating on the 3 train on Friday in front of some poor woman. They picked him up without incident. He is Kevin Bishop, age 34; no word yet as to how he will plead.

As for the cop who told the victim, when she first tried to report the crime last week, that she should leave the police out of it and “call 311”: she is expected to be interviewed by Internal Affairs tomorrow.
