Police hunting for N train masturbator

Old crank: Cops say this middle-aged guy masturbated in front of a teenage girl on the Manhattan-bound N train platform at 62nd Street.

Cops released photos of the creep who allegedly jerked off in front of a 12-year-old girl in an N train station last month.

Police say the 50–60-year-old crank pulled his pants down and went to town on himself while staring at the poor kid on the 62nd Street station’s Manhattan-bound platform around 2:20 pm on May 18, officials said.

The frightened pre-teen ran and called the cops, according to a police report.

Officials say the suspect has white hair and was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, a black jacket, black pants, and a black backpack.

Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
