R Train Straphanger Exposing Himself to Women: Cops

Police are trying to track down an R train straphanger who is exposing himself to women, officials say.

The man is connected with different incidents dating back to Aug. 16, all of which happened onboard R trains in Manhattan, the NYPD says.

The first time, police say the man exposed his groin area to a 32-year-old woman sitting in a nearby sit on an uptown R train. The woman got off the train when it stopped at 28th Street and Broadway, but the man stayed on.

The NYPD say this man exposed himself to three women on the R train.

A few hours later on the same day, the man exposed himself again but this time onboard a downtown R train near the Murray Street and Broadway Station, officials said. He then struck again on Sept. 5 near the same station, cops said.

Investigators released surveillance footage of the man (above) seen wearing a camouflage shirt. They urge witnesses with information on the man to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
