Police on April 18 arrested a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman on a Bay Ridge–bound R train last month.

The 21-year-old victim told authorities the man grabbed her crotch as the subway arrived at Park Slope’s Union Street station at 11 am on March 27.

Investigators caught the 34-year-old Sunset Park man roughly a week after cops circulated photos of him, which the victim snapped as he sat on the train following the assault.

Officers charged the subject for sexual abuse, according to police.

Reasonable discourse

Highly Suspect from Bay Ridge says:
So the "alleged" groper didn't run but just rather sat there as this woman took his photo and he didn't even make an effort to cover his face.

Perhaps this woman was mistaken or just seeking attention. But whatever the case, there's reasonable cause to think the complainant may actually be the perpetrator.

NYPD - do your homework before accusing what may in fact be an innocent Hispanic man being used for someone's efforts to be get into the funny papers.

Frank from Bay Ridge says:
Probably an illegal the moronic liberals want to protect.

Highly Suspect from Bay Ridge says:
Frank - it's so much easier to profile than to obtain knowledge isn't it.
