The police are looking for a man who allegedly flashed his genitals to a woman onboard the subway.

On Friday, Aug. 9 at about 1:40 a.m., a 23-year-old woman was riding a Manhattan-bound E train when a man sat down across from her and exposed his penis, according to police. When the subway train pulled into the Northern Boulevard station, the victim yelled at the flasher and got off to alert the MTA conductor. The suspect then fled in an unknown direction.

The suspect shown in the above photograph is described as a Hispanic man, 35 to 55 years old and was last seen wearing a blue New York Yankees baseball cap, a white shirt, gray sweatpants and dark colored sneakers, cops said.

Anyone with information regarding 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 or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.

The truth is, there is no right or wrong way to respond to harassment, because it isn’t the victims fault. The response is a matter of personal choice.
