Cops are searching for a perv who pleasured himself in front of a woman on a Manhattan-bound A train on Aug. 30.

The 27-year-old victim told police she was riding the blue bullet when the creep masturbated over his clothes as the train approached the Hoyt-Shermerhorn station at 11:15 am. She then got off at Jay Street-Metrotech station and the jerk stayed on, authorities said.

She managed to snap a photo of the man, who is approximately 55-years-old, 5-foot-6, and 230 pounds, cops said.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.

Unless the woman actually has footage of the alleged act, I disagree with publishing a photo of the guy based on a hearsay account.
