Disgusting. This is the sort of crime Trump commits and brags about, not good members of our community.


When I first moved to NYC 16 years ago there was more police presence on the trains for sure. Trains were not nearly as packed as they are today. The level of crazy has gone up big time and it’s time to tighten it all up. This city is slipping in all areas.


Get off your high horse, bmc. I notice that you never express the same level of sympathy for victims of these creeps. Anyway, there’s a long history of law enforcement publishing details of alleged criminals with their sketches or photos to aid their capture, so cell phone images on a blog are really nothing new. This guy and others like him will all have their opportunity to defend themselves in court, which is more than they deserve in my view.

So, in your unconstitutional view, he doesn’t deserve a trial. He’s guilty and should be put in jail. I’m sad you live here.


The real issue, the over crowded subway and lack of personal space, making this way too easy for creeps to do.


LIC Post… This is irresponsible journalism. These subway accusations need to be handled more professionally. I have bumped into more than a few nut cases over the years. I have been called a women abuser for bumping into a woman. I have had men try to start a fist fight with me for a bump. How do we know this guy did anything? Were there multiple witnesses? I think it is time for cameras on trains. Actually surprised we don’t have them already. I am not defending this man, I am defending the right to due process. The right to be considered innocent until proven guilty. The right to not have your face on the front page for touching a little girl inappropriately. This guy can still make the cover but maybe he deserves a chance to defend himself. Did we not just witness a crazy lady attack some poor Chinese lady for apparently no good reason? We are giving crazy people ammunition to do harm.

The 15-year old girl reported this to the police. And she obviously was upset enough to file a police report, and good thing she had the smarts to take his picture. As a 7-train rider and, I thank her for her bravery. Hope they catch the creep soon.

It takes courage to report these kinds of incidents, especially for a 15-year old. To insinuate she’s “crazy” or making this all up is just pathetic.

His head and neck wrap is likely a disposable disguise. But probably not the coat. So be on the lookout for a shiny black puffer coat with big front packets, and the white fleece lining and cheesy fur-lined hood.


Hey brooklynmc…Just curious…You’re not the guy in the photo…Seems like there’s a bumping problem
