    Police are looking for a man they say exposed himself to a woman on a Manhattan subway platform, then flashed his gun at her brother Monday just before midnight.

    The 38-year-old woman was standing on the southbound N/R platform at the Fifth Avenue Station in Midtown when she heard a hissing noise next to her, the NYPD said.

    When she looked over to see what the noise was, she saw a man manipulating his penis outside his pants, police said.

    As the man started walking away, the woman started to cry. Her 41-year-old brother asked her what was wrong, and after she explained what had happened, he took out his cellphone and started to follow the suspect while recording video.

    When the suspect reached the station’s exit, he pulled out a black handgun, pointed it at the brother and told him to mind his own business, according to police.

    No injuries were reported.

    Police released surveillance video of the suspect and ask that anyone with information call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
