Jan. 27, 2020 By Allie Griffin

Police are looking for a man who masturbated next to a female straphanger onboard the E train last week.

The man stood in front of a 31-year-old woman who was seated on the train inside the Forest Hills station on Friday, when he began combing his beard with a knife and touching his genitals over his pants at 8:40 a.m., police said.

He then sat next to the woman and placed his hands inside his pants and continued to masturbate, police said.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, on Twitter @NYPDTips.

Where was everyone while this was happening. Baseball bat, penknife, forks, 👊. Really, the nerve to sit!

Apparently it is more important to take photos or record these days rather than intervene or assist. Everyone would rather have the newest video or photo with “likes” rather than do the right thing and be liked in reality. Countless news stories showpeople recording instead of assisting. Shame.


This is all thanks to policies by deblasio, Cuomo, nyc council progressives. Their policies are endangering law abiding residents. NYPDs new motto because of them is catch and release. Forest Hills used to be the best area in Queens, now it looks like city is hell bent in destroying most safe neighborhoods, there is an influx of mentally unstable homeless and criminal elements. Quality of life getting worse, why do citizens not showing up at the polls and vote this politicians out? The new justice reforms need to be revised.


This is getting ridiculous , we need more police protection. It is insane that everyday, is a different episode. It is very scare to take these trains.

On the newer cars (the R160s, which are always used on the E and M, and sometimes on the F and R), there already are panels at the ends of each car, with a red button, which you can use to contact the train’s crew
