Police say they are looking for the swift subway sicko on the Upper East Side who sexually assaulted a female straphanger last month.

According to police, the disgusting act took place aboard a Downtown 4 train at around 7:45 a.m. on March 2, when a 49-year-old woman was sitting in the train car as it arrived at the 86th Street station.

At that moment, cops said, the creep approached her and placed his penis on her arm before fleeing at that station. 

The incident was reported to the 19th Precinct and NYPD Transit District 4. The victim was not physically injured.

Police described the deviant as a man standing about 6 foot tall and sporting a large beard. He was last seen wearing a dark colored hat, dark colored jacket with a fur collar, black pants, and brown boots.

No arrests have been made. Police released a surveillance image of the suspect on Saturday, April 6, in hopes he will be recognized.

Anyone with information regarding the incident or the suspect’s whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA). You can also submit tips online at crimestoppers.nypdonline.org, or on X (the platform formerly known as Twitter) @NYPDTips. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
