Police have arrested a man who allegedly pulled a gun on a straphanger after harassing her on an uptown 2 train.

According to police, 29-year-old Mitchel Sharif and an unidentified 23-year-old woman boarded the train separately at Times Square around 3 a.m. on Saturday. Sharif sat next to the victim and allegedly began to compliment her and touch her right leg. When the woman asked Sharif to stop, he allegedly pulled a black gun from his waistband and pointed it at her.

When the train arrived at the East 149th Street and 3rd Avenue station in the Bronx, Sharif allegedly told the woman to get off the train with him, which she refused. Before he exited, the victim noticed a Playboy bunny tattoo on the left side of his neck.

The victim and two other women who observed the encounter exited the train together at Intervale Avenue, where the two women called the police on the victim's behalf. Police from the 40th Precinct found a man fitting Sharif's description at 2688 3rd Avenue. The woman identified Sharif, who was then placed under arrest.

A source told the News that Sharif said "“You guys saved me. I was going to kill someone else.” A Hi-Point .380 caliber handgun was found in Sharif's possession, and police recovered a loaded magazine from his back pocket.

Sharif was charged with stalking, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a firearm, menacing, and harassment.
