An 18-year-old man has turned himself in for the horrifying sex abuse on a D train earlier this month.
Police said that on October 1st a 27-year-old woman had been on a southbound train when she realized that a male passenger had been standing very close to her after he boarded the train at 59th Street-Columbus Circle. At 47th Street-Rockefeller Center, she realized that he "ejaculated onto her buttocks and her backpack," according to the NYPD.
The woman described the incident to WABC 7: "I noticed him by 59th Street and I look back," and thought, "You're really too close to me at this point." She also said he "bumped into her again, breathed on her, and touched her hand while she was holding onto the pole." And when she sat down, he sat down as well.
The woman had taken a photograph of the passenger, which the NYPD shared with the media (she also turned over her backpack to police). Ibrahim Mehsin of the Bronx "surrendered to cops at the 50th Precinct in the Bronx on Monday after seeing his picture on the news," reports the Post.
Mehsin was charged with third-degree sexual abuse.
If you see or experience sexual misconduct in the subway (this includes seeing a masturbator, being groped, being grinded on, etc.), you can report it to the MTA and police on this website. There's also a place for you to upload photos and/or video. Don't let the perverts win.
