Police say a Staten Island man exposed himself next to a woman on a subway platform, then flashed a handgun and told a man to “mind his own business.”
Authorities charged 56-year-old Steven Esposito with menacing and public lewdness after an incident at the Fifth Avenue subway station in Manhattan on Oct. 1.
The NYPD says that a 38-year-old woman was on a southbound N/R subway platform “when she heard a hissing noise beside her” and noticed that the suspect had exposed himself.
A second victim, a 41-year-old male, followed the suspect to record him as he left the station. That’s when the victim pulled out a black handgun, pointed it at the male victim and told him to “mind his own business,” police say.
No one was injured in the incident.
