Cops cuffed a man for molesting, robbing, and attempting to rape a woman after she boarded a 4 train in Crown Heights.
The victim told police she got on the Manhattan-bound subway at the Franklin Avenue station on Jan. 17 at 1:15 am, when the victim immediately began trying to kiss her, according to authorities.
The woman tried to push the man away, but he clung onto her and ultimately dragged her to the train’s floor, where he pulled her pants down and grabbed her genitals, cops said.
She attempted to escape the suspect, but he held her arms down, swiping $47 in cash, her cellphone, and earphones before fleeing the train at Atlantic Avenue–Barclays Center station, and running away on the subway tracks, according to police, who said the woman received treatment to minor injuries at a local hospital following the incident.
Detectives caught up with the suspect after uncovering surveillance footage that showed the him reemerge from the subway tracks onto the station’s 3-train platform, and arrested him on Jan. 18 on charges including attempted rape, robbery, and sexual abuse, authorities said.
