Cops Hunt Two-Time Subway Flasher

Police are seeking help from the public to identify and locate a man wanted for exposing himself to two female Queens straphangers since February 14.

Queens Transit police officials said the first incident occurred at about 5:50 a.m. on February 14, when the pervert approached a 50-year-old woman on the F train platform at the 63rd Drive station in Rego Park.

The suspect walked up to the woman, exposed himself and boarded an F train that pulled into the station, police said.

The horrified woman remained at the 63rd Drive station and boarded the next train, police said. The woman reported the incident after she arrived at her destination.

Cops said the same suspect struck again at 7:40 a.m. on March 2, when he approached a 54-year-old woman on board a Queens-bound R train.

The suspect sat in front of the woman as the train pulled in to the Grand Avenue station in Elmhurst, exposed himself and exited the train at the Woodhaven/Queens Boulevard station, police said.

The suspect is descried as an Hispanic male, 25-30-years-old, 5-feet, 5-inches-tall, 120-140 pounds. He was wearing black jeans, a black hooded sweatshirt and a black jacket at the time of the incidents.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS or click on www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.

The Hotline is offering a $2,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
