Man attempts to rape woman aboard moving Train 4 in Lower Manhattan

Police are searching for a man who tried to rape a woman on a moving subway train in Lower Manhattan last week.

The creep sat next to Straphanger, 24, on a northbound Line 4 train and then removed his trousers and underwear just before 11:30pm last Thursday, police said.

According to the NYPD, he stepped onto the woman, placed his hands on her body and attempted to pull down her skirt.

The victim was able to fend off the attacker from her. She escaped to another wagon.

Her attacker, meanwhile, ran off the train at the Bowling Green subway station and then boarded a ferry to Staten Island, police officers said.

Police said the suspect was between 25 and 35 years old, with bleached blonde hair and a right eyebrow piercing. He was last seen in a black winter jacket with a fur-trimmed hood, a gray BMW hoodie, gray BMW jogging pants and white trainers.

The NYPD is asking anyone with information about the incident to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or in Spanish at 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by following the CrimeStoppers website @NYPDTips on Twitter. Man attempts to rape woman aboard moving Train 4 in Lower Manhattan
