He made her a Valentine’s Day victim.
She made him feel “wanted.”
A poised straphanger last week snapped a cell-phone picture of the pervert who exposed himself to her on the A train in Rockaway—and cops have asked for the public’s assistance in identifying the image’s star subject.
According to investigators, the 52-year-old female victim saw the suspect with his hands down his pants last Sunday, Feb. 14, around 7:55 a.m. while aboard a southbound A that was entering the Mott Avenue station in Far Rockaway. After she took a picture of him, the suspect pulled out his penis, cops said. She hurried out of the car, while he remained on the train.
The suspect has been described as a heavy-set Hispanic man in his 50s, last seen wearing a blue baseball cap, dark-colored jacket, dark-colored sweatpants and dark-colored sneakers.
