The woman followed the man as he fled onto a 4 train. He got off the train at 86th Street, the NYPD said.
The approximately 55-year-old man stands at around 5-foot-10, weighs around 200 pounds and was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, a green jacket, dark blue jeans, a black baseball hat, black boots and sunglasses, police said.
