NYPD: Subway Rider Suspected of Groping 4-Year-Old Girl Arrested

The man wanted for allegedly groping a 4-year-old girl on the subway, then harassing her mother, has been arrested, police say. 

Kwame Johnson, 42, of Brooklyn, is facing charges of sex abuse, forcible touching, acting in a manner injurious to a child, third-degree menacing and harassment. It wasn't immediately clear if Johnson had an attorney. 

Police said he slipped his hand under the buttocks of a 4-year-old girl sitting on a southbound 4 train in the Bronx the night of Dec. 27. When the girl's 33-year-old mother confronted the man about it, he threatened to shoot her, police said. 

The woman moved down the train car with her daughter and took a photo of the suspect, who got off at Grand Central Terminal. 

The man never showed a weapon, and no one was hurt.
