Police are hunting a man who masturbated in front of a 14-year-old girl on the L train going from Union Square to Sixth Avenue.

The victim told police it happened last Monday shortly after she boarded the train at Union Square at 1 p.m. But when she got to the next stop, the man followed her as she left the train and went into the mezzanine area of the station. At that point, the victim left the station while the man got onto another train.

The suspect is described as black, about 35 years old, 5’5″-5’6″ tall, 140-150 lbs., and has a medium build. He was last seen with a goatee, wearing a black coat with fur on the collar.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or for Spanish 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers Website at or texting their tips to 274637(CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

  1. This is a disturbing event indeed. I am glad for the young woman’s eventual safety. As a mental health professional and somewhat more or less compassion-before-judgment individual (I try anyway), I would urge this site to review its editorial standards/sensitivity regarding judgmental/provocative language in headlining (this is not the NY Post .. or is it?). While the male cited was reported to engage in offensive and/or illegal behavior, we do not know anything about his psychological/mental or other circumstances. The act was “creepy” but we don’t know if the individual is the malignancy intended by the word choice.
