Man sought for public lewdness on N train in Sunset Park

Cops are looking to identify the man they say masturbated on a local train in front of a woman last month.

The man proceeded to masturbate in front of the 44-year-old at which point she fled into an adjacent train car.

The perp is described as a black male last seen wearing a black t-shirt and white pants with a black design on them.
