Suspect (NYPD)

May 28, 2019 By Christian Murray

The police are looking for a man who allegedly grabbed a teenage girl’s thigh on the “F” train near Long Island City earlier this month.

Police say that a man in his 30s put his hand on a 16-year-old girl’s thigh on a Manhattan-bound train between the 21st St. Queensbridge stop and the Lexington Avenue/63rd Street subway station at around 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 18. The suspect then used his hand to rub her thigh.

The victim fled the station at the Lexington Avenue stop and the suspect remained on the train.

The suspect is described as being about 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 130 pounds and with black hear. He was last seen wearing a green T-shirt, blue jeans and multicolored sneakers.

Police released photos of the suspect.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit

Someone here is apparently suffering from a severe case of “Trump Derangement Syndrome”. Your President Trump boogeyman will eat you alive if you don’t seek psychiatric attention; the sooner, the better. Without help you will not survive Trump’s second term.

This articular is about a predator living here and now in our community. But your mind is on some forty year old allegations from a thousand miles away. We both know that this incident is not about Roy Moore. It is just your feeble attempt to once again excuse abhorrent behavior (this time on the F train). Clearly A case of TDS.

I’m beginning to think that you harbor something of a Roy Moore fetish. Perhaps psychiatric therapy could help you here too.

Now, this is where you respond with some “..yeah Trump” comment.

People are still trying to force the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" meme?!

It’s already crashed and burned. He tweets random meaningless phrases like this all the time, can you regurgitate one of those instead?


We should care about this pervert more than Trump cared about Roy Moore preying on underage girls at the local mall. Instead endorsing perverts, the way Trump did, we need to drive them from our community. Stay safe out there.

Well I'm a patriot so I think America's always been great

It’s a shame you don’t have any pride in your country


Absolutely agree! Unfortunately this guy took from the playbook of that politician who lived in Forest Hills who just got out of jail for sexting underage girls in the buff while holding his son. Totally unacceptable behavior!!!!

I agree, Roy Moore was preying on underage girls at the local mall when Trump endorsed him.

Also some other people did things in the past, I wonder why you keep comparing him to other sexual predators?

I agree, Roy Moore was preying on underage girls at the local mall when Trump endorsed him.

As you point out, other people have done things in the past, (but the president didn’t endorse them, not sure why they’re comparable).

Why do you keep comparing Roy Moore to so many sexual predators? ?

You had to go THAT far back for your whataboutism?

That article is from 6 years ago ? and didn’t involve the president.

I guess the only connection is that Roy Moore committed sex crimes?
