Ugh, the jerk in the photo above just pulled out his penis in front of me on the subway. I’d hoped to go my entire life without becoming a participant in such an unwanted encounter, but rather than sulk about it, I’m posting the jerk face’s photo online so that everyone can learn that he’s a flasher. (And maybe, just maybe, he can get caught.)
Here’s how it went down: I was on the A train at the Inwood-207 Street subway station at around 11 p.m. Saturday night. Inwood is an A line terminal, so I was sitting on the train waiting for it depart when the dude above stumbled into the car, almost rubbed up against me and took a seat to my left. I ignored him and turned my attention back to my iPhone.
Maybe a minute later a woman sitting a few seats down from me got up screaming “He’s playing with himself” and storming out. When I looked at the dude, his arms were folded over his crotch. He stayed for maybe 30 more seconds before he got up and walked out of the car. As he passed by me, I saw his fly was open and, lo and behold, there was his penis.
After a woman nearby said “Did you see that? Someone should report him!” I decided to follow my own advice, so I got up and followed the dude as he walked into another car and sat down across from two women. A few seconds later he started to pull out his penis again. That’s when I walked up to him, said “Smile, pervert” and snapped the above photos of him. (In hindsight I probably shouldn’t have said anything, it gave him the chance to cover his crotch with his arms again, hence the penis-less pics above.)
Photos in hand, I went to speak to the station employees. A tall burly employee asked me to show him where the jerk face was, but by the time we got back to the car he was gone. The women sitting across from him said he ran to the back of the train, but we searched the entire train and he wasn’t here. He must’ve fled the station.
But, I guess all is not lost. The jerk’s picture is now up on the internet, and hopefully this will make A train riders a bit more vigilant as they ride. So hey, if you see this dude anywhere: do us all a favor and call the police.
