The New York City Police Department is asking the public’s assistance identifying the suspect wanted for menacing, in transit, within the confines of the Midtown North Precinct (Manhattan). Details are as follows:
On Monday, October 19, 2015, at 11:56 pm, Victim #1, a 38-year-old female, was on the south bound platform of the N and R subway lines, at the 5 Avenue Station, when she heard a hissing noise beside her. When she looked to see what the noise was, she observed the suspect manipulating his penis outside of his pants. As the suspect began to leave the station, Victim #1 began to cry. Victim #2, a 41-year-old male, asked Victim #1 what was wrong. After she explained what had happened, Victim #2 took out his cell phone and began to follow the suspect while recording. As the suspect reached the exit to the station, he pulled out a black handgun, pointed at Victim #2 and told him to mind his own business. The suspect then exited the station. There were no report injuries.
