2007_07_subassaul.jpgA truly bizarre crime is reported in today's Post. Apparently a man took a passed-out woman from a subway platform and then tried to assault her in Nolita.

A 21-year-old woman had been passed on a bench at the Brooklyn Bridge station's platform. Around 5AM, Jasiri Walloe allegedly kissed and fondled the woman until an uptown 6 train pulled in. He then took the woman on the train (carrying her) and got out at Spring Street. From the Post:

Another rider grew suspicious and followed the two off the train. Walloe took the woman into a vestibule at 214 Mulberry St. where he removed her shorts and underwear, police said. He then fondled and molested her, waking her up, police said. Walloe allegedly began to bolt, but was caught a short distance away by police who had been called by the witness.

That's incredibly creepy. And thank goodness for the witness! The Post says Walloe was charged kidnapping and sexual abuse.
