New York City straphanger, Jasheem Smiley, captured video of a suspicious man groping a woman while she slept on a southbound 4 train.
Smiley, who was sitting across from the groper and sleeping woman, was criticized for not stopping the groping, but told The Gothamist:
“I contacted the NYPD transit detective. There is ongoing investigation. No foul negative attitude on my page please. I have a sister too, of course I didn't just sit there. I took charge after I got proof (video recording). BTW, she woke up & got off the train.”
When he started touching her, that's when I turned my camera on. My jaw dropped. I had never seen anything like this before."
Immediately after taking the footage, Smiley said he and another male passenger began shouting at the man to stop.
"We told him, 'that's not right!' But he kept touching her, so I kicked her foot so she'd wake up, but she didn't," Smiley said. "Then he put his arm around her to try and pull her closer and that's when she woke up. She gave him a look like, 'who the hell are you?' and punched him in the cheek…She punched him pretty hard."
What a creep! Hopefully the NYPD finds this guy and puts him behind bars. To view the video click over to the Gothamist.
