By Liz Goff
Queens Transit cops arrested a 64-yearold man on May 18, after he sexually assaulted a woman and a teenage girl on a No. 7 train in Sunnyside, police said.

Anti-Crime Transit officers riding the Flushing-bound train on May 18 arrested a man who identified himself as “Mohammed H.” after they spotted him pressing his body against a 15-year-old girl.

Cops said Mohammed, 64, first pressed himself against a 36-year-old woman on the train. The woman moved away as the train entered the 52nd Street station and Mohammed turned to the teen and repeatedly pressed himself against her buttocks, police said. Mohammed kept pressing himself against the teen until she was able to move away, police said.

Mohammed then turned back to the woman and pressed himself against her again, police said. The woman again moved away and Mohammed turned back to the teen.

Transit Police Officers Gregory Perpal and Jaipaul Ramdat entered the train at the 74th Street station and spotted Mohammed, police said. The cops identified themselves as police officers and removed Mohammed from the train, police said.

Mohammed was arrested on two counts of forcible touching, two counts of sex abuse, two counts of harassment and one count of reckless endangerment of a child.
