Cops are looking to identify the man they say masturbated on a local subway platform in front of a young girl.
According to police, just before 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18, a 12-year-old girl was standing inside the 62nd Street “N” subway station when she saw an older man standing on the northbound platform with his pants down below the waist, touching himself as he stared at her.
