NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police were searching Tuesday night for a man who placed his genitals into a teenage girl’s hand while on the subway on the Upper West Side late last month.

Police said around 8:20 a.m. Monday, Oct. 30, the 17-year-old was on a southbound D Train near the 81st Street-Museum of Natural History stop when the man placed his exposed penis into her right hand.


The girl turned in the man’s direction and saw him using a backpack to cover his groin, police said.

The girl got off the train and transferred at another station, police said. It was not clear where the suspect left the train.

Police have released a photo of the suspect.

    The people running the traffic department in NYC are clueless. And should not even be in charge of bikes much less cars. NYC is a horror story for traffic. And they venture to over manage the thinking of drivers believing they need someone else to think for them. Entire lanes of traffic have been turned into parks and concrete barriers, ultimately costing time, money, frustration, and vast delays. This makes prisoners of people in their own city. Bikes are great, but the city was constructed for horses and horse carriages. So the streets are narrow, and NOT for bikes. Once you close a street for bikes and displace all the parking you stifle all the traffic flow.
