Police are in pursuit of a masturbating pervert who urinated on a Lower East Side straphanger, then jumped on her back as she fled.

The encounter happened at around 2:00am on June 16 aboard a Manhattan-bound J train that was crossing the Williamsburg Bridge. According to the Daily News, the suspect started to jerk off while standing next to the 23-year-old victim. The woman moved further down the car to escape, but he followed and began to pee on her.

The victim bolted from the train at the Essex Street station, but he caught up, and jumped on her back before fleeing into the night. She reportedly sustained minor injuries, and refused medical attention.

Three months after the illicit incident, the authorities finally released a surveillance image of the perp exiting the turnstile.

Police describe the suspect as a 5-foot-10 African American male between the ages of 25 and 35. He was last seen wearing a black shirt with a white logo on the front, black pants, and a black baseball hat.
